Pro Member Medical & Liability Release

I want to highlight one important area of RAID Membership. You may have now noticed that all Instructors will need to login and update their Medical & Liability Release (MLR) which will be valid until 1st October 2018 (renewal date) after which it will expire and following completion again, will be valid for a full 12 months (Expiry 1st Oct 2019).

Any question with ‘YES’; requires dive medical clearance, which should be sent to RAID UK for uploading to the relevant Instructor profile.

Once the medical is verified (HSE or other recognized doctors note) the status will look like this:

The RAID App will also be updated this week to follow the MLR requirements.

Any new Members can renew now (from July) and gain an additional three months of Membership for your first year.

It’s so important to be honest here, I’m 49 with at least 49.000 miles on my body-clock, my HSE medical covers me for my Yes’s, so me, my students and my company are all protected when they’re uploaded correctly onto the RAID system. It’s essential that everyone is truthful here!

It’s also required that all teaching pro’s have Public Liability insurance, you should supply this to us, where it’ll be uploaded too.

Remember, your allocated Dive Centre will help you with your Membership and the supply of these important documents. RAID UK and Malta only deal dive centres ideally, so ask your local RAID to help you.

So be Green not Red and renew like a pro!

RAID Logo Use

For the past four years we have been growing fast as a company and now have a new partnership with Kalkomey Enterprises, things are moving even quicker. This is providing fantastic opportunities to further develop the RAID brand and also brings a need for RRO’s to control certain slightly better. With this in mind we must now draw your attention to the licensed use of the RAID logos.

If a student does not complete the online course Quick Quiz or Exam in front of the RAID Instructor and the Instructor was not always in attendance during the Quick Quiz or Exam, then the student must complete the appropriate Quick Quiz at the Dive Centre to demonstrate knowledge and confirm that the academic work was done by them.

These standards reflect RAID’s ISO ratings and are designed to the highest industry standards.

Areas of immediate new interest within the standards are RAID’s change, like other mainstream training agencies, to allow training to start at 10 years old for junior divers. Instructors training junior divers are encouraged to visit our blog, in addition to reading the new standards, as the use of training credits varies from 10-11 year old who will use a junior open water credit and 12-15 year old who will use a open water 20 qualification with various junior diver restrictions.

Other new additions alongside the new look and feel of the document are the new RAIDaptive courses including an entry-level program, a buddy diver program and a specialty program. In the technical area RAIDs new OC Deco 40, 50 and 60 diver and instructor programs will catch the eye and need review.

Again with RAID these standards are out of date if downloaded off your professional log in profiles, they continue to appear on the log in page for you, the look and feel is greatly improved with index hyperlinking for ease of document navigation.

RAID RGDS are just that now, the instructor ‘how to teach’ guides are all freely available to qualified instructors through their instructor login profiles through the course materials held there.

Don’t delay! Get online and review this great new document and remember it is a standard to review the course standards before teaching.
