Since the start of the 2019 school year, FFESSM licence cards are now perpetual and dematerialized. The licences subscribed since 15/09/2020 concern the 2020-2021 season.. They are valid until 31/12/2021.
What is a "perpetual" licence?
The FFESSM licence is now "perpetual", i.e. it does not have a maximum printed validity date. In other words, you will no longer receive a card each time you take out a new licence. Each year, we issue some 150,000 licences, which is as much less plastic consumed by the FFESSM each year.
It is also "dematerialized" because its QR code contains all the information of its holder such as its date of validity, the diving club to which it belongs, the identity card of the practitioner, his certificates, his insurance and possibly his Medical Certificate of Absence of Contraindications (CACI).
What is a QR Code? The QR Code is the cousin of the barcode but may contain a greater amount of information than its counterpart. It is distinguished by a square made up of black and white dots, although it exists in different colours. How to use it? If it used to require a reader or a specific application to read it, today almost all mobile devices are natively capable of doing so. Browsers such as Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari automatically detect a QR Code. On a smartphone, third-party installation is not required, just photograph the QR Code to see the corresponding action. In this case for the FFESSM licence, access to the online practitioner's file. On the practical side, since the smartphone's camera is usually accessible without unlocking it, data access is faster.
What's the point? The interest is twofold. On the one hand, from an environmental point of view, it helps to avoid printing almost 150,000 plastic cards every year. On the other hand, it reduces the burden on volunteers at general assembly receptions, competitions, etc. What is the limit? First of all, if the access to the practitioner's information has always been linked to an Internet connection, the access to the validity of the licence will necessarily go through the scanning of the card. If the QR Code is altered by scratches, it may no longer be readable. As the card is intended to be protected for a long period of time, however, it is important to bear in mind the following points protect the FFESSM license in a portfolio.
