AIDA International Moves To Certification e-Cards


Freediving Federation AIDA International has announced that it is moving to a full digital Certification e-Card process.  Like most training agencies, AIDA used to issue plastic certification cards to all students who passed a course with an AIDA instructor, however according to a statement to it’s Instructor Facebook Community AIDA stated that:

“Today’s technology brings us an eco-friendly and hassle-free solution. The electronic cards save us and the planet from printing on plastic, ensure a faster delivery to the students and remove completely the problem of lost cards.”

In addition, AIDA spokesperson Alexandru Russu had this to say:

“Shipping certification cards was a much bigger burden than we expected in terms of logistics and budget; in some regions of the world packages were systematically lost and the whole certification process ended up taking almost a half of the Education Budget”

To support the new process AIDA is preparing targeted infographics to describe the benefits of the new system.
