AIDA Instructor Renewal Will Be Free of Charge Next Year
Freediving's governing body, The Association Internationale pour le Développement de l'Apnée (AIDA) has announced that it is waiving its 2021 renewal fees 'in an effort to support its instructors in this time of social and economic uncertainty', according to an 8 April press release.
The statement from AIDA in full:
'In an effort to support its instructors in this time of social and economic uncertainty, AIDA is waiving the instructor renewal fee for 2021.
The decision was taken in the last Executive Board meeting. The officers hope that it will help and encourage over a thousand AIDA instructors who are active but currently with only limited or without any, opportunity to teach courses.
The status renewal processing will begin in the last month of this year and will follow the usual procedure except without the annual fee.
AIDA appreciates that everyone’s priority now is to maintain a safe and reassuring social environment and will continue taking steps in support of their instructors and the freediving community as a whole.'
