If you wish to pay now via Paypal then, after pressing 'Send', press the 'Buy Now' button and you will be redirected to the Paypal website. If you prefer to pay by bank transfer or cheque then the Membership Secretary will contact you shortly with alternative payment details and options.

When filling out your membership application you must include all relative requested information, such as surname, teacher and date of certification, as well as your TCR number (the 4 digit number on the back of your training certificate record). This is for data collection purposes and helps us greatly to identify expired memberships.

Please also note that confirmation of membership, and your name appearing under the members list of the website, can take several days as this is not an automated system; the BADC is a not-for-profit, and the committee work free of charge. We will always endeavour to process applications and reply to emails as swiftly as possible but please bear with us during busy periods - do not send duplicate membership requests. Thank you.
