This new course 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, put in the context of realistic scenarios that anyone could encounter at their club or centre.
From April 2015 onwards it will be a requirement for all newly qualifying Level 2 Racing Coaches, Dinghy and Windsurfing Instructors and Senior Instructors to complete prior to their instructor/coach training course.
This course is fully online and, like all RYA courses, will be offered by training centres recognised to do so. A list of those centres is available in our Where's My Nearest search at the top of your screen.

This course is equivalent to classroom training of approximately three hours. However, the benefit of learning online is that you can work through it at your own speed. It may take you more or less time than that.
