This online RYA Safe and Fun course provides an introduction to safeguarding and child protection and is suitable for anyone working with children and vulnerable adults in an RYA environment. This includes those volunteering or working at recognised training centres and affiliated clubs.

It provides a basic level of knowledge and awareness, putting it in the context of realistic scenarios that anyone could encounter at their club or centre.

This course is a requirement for all newly qualifying Dinghy and Windsurfing instructors, Senior Instructors and level 2 Racing coaches and must be completed prior to the instructor training course.

Candidates must also complete a pre-course worksheet which is accessed within the Safe and Fun course, and ensure they bring it with them to the instructor course.

It is estimated it will take you up 3 hours to complete the course, however, as it is an online course you can complete it at whatever pace suits you.
