Club Welfare Officer Online Training – New Dates Announced

Sign-up now for online En Guarde Ready and BF’s Welfare Officer Training 

In preparation for a return to fencing this is an excellent time for club welfare officers to bring themselves up to date with the training requirements for their roles. If your certificates have expired (they are only valid for 3 years) or you have never attended these courses, we now have online options as a temporary measure to allow our community to continue training whilst in lockdown

Please email [email protected] to be booked onto a course. (If you are interested in attending a course and are not able to attend these dates, please also email us.)

Delivered via video conferencing, this is the basic course that talks you through the templates, guidelines, policies and procedures (all found in the welfare zone of the website) a club welfare officer (and club) will have an awareness and understanding of as part of the clubs’ best practice.  This is a pre-requisite for Welfare Officer Training.
