Deptherapy & Deptherapy Education Announce Partnership With RAID
Starting with the next training expedition to the Red Sea in September, Deptherapy Programme Members will follow the RAID training model and be certified as RAID divers. A crossover plan is also in place for Deptherapy divemasters, instructors and instructor trainers.
RAID will provide training materials and certifications for Deptherapy Programme Members free of charge, and has pledged to support the charity in marketing and fundraising initiatives. Deptherapy and RAID will also now work together in developing adaptive training materials for the future.
'We have been working closely with RAID since the beginning of the year,' said Richard Cullen, Chairman of Deptherapy. 'The package we have been offered by RAID is exceptional and in return, we will provide our expertise in adaptive teaching to RAID. We have already been made to feel a part of the RAID community and we are excited by the thought of moving forward together.'
James Rogers, Business Director of RAID (UK and Malta) recently spent a week on expedition with Deptherapy where he was able to see first-hand the 'extraordinary and lifesaving transformational work undertaken by the Deptherapy Team.'
'RAID is proud and excited to be chosen as the new diver training agency for Deptherapy & Deptherapy Education,' said Rogers. 'The charity’s work is world-class and the RAID system will provide a high quality and a modern online platform for their divers, future development needs and global diving adventures.'
