Membership

You can read more about the process of training your own RAD Dog on the 'About RAD Teams' Page.

Here at RAD Inc. we aim to keep our memberships affordable and easily attainable for the community.
Our pricing structure is as follows: 

Initial joining fee:       $120

Annual renewal fee:   $75

You can find our Terms of Membership, as well as our Training and Behaviour Standards attached to the application forms below. 

The Process: 

  1. Read through your forms thoroughly, and make sure you understand our terms and standards. 

  2. Complete your application.  Part 1 of the application yourself, Part 2 will be completed by your medical team, Part 3 will be completed by your veterinarian, and Part 4 is a legally binding statutory declaration, which will need to be completed by an approved commonwealth witness (such as your veterinarian).

  3. Send in your application with all relevant extras attached. We recommend emailing your forms, but you may also post them. 

  4. Please allow approximately 2-3 weeks for your application to be processed by our team. 

  5. If successful, you will receive your welcome email with your welcome letters, informative documents, colour level information, and gain access to our members only Facebook group. 

  6. Get Started! Once you have been officially welcomed you can get started training as a RAD Team! You can do this independently, or request additional help. Please keep in mind we are a support based incorporated association, not a training organisation - we are here to help you in your journey of training your own Assistance Dog. We have an incredible group of trainers and assessors all over Australia who we are able to refer our members to for further support at any stage.
