If you need to update some of your certifications, Sport NI have organised the following Safeguarding workshops and Designated Officers training.

The online Designated Safeguarding Children’s Officer course occurs over two evenings in which both must be attended in order to complete the course.  This also consists of pre-learning like the Safeguarding course that will have to be completed beforehand.  You will receive the resource booklet and on completion will receive a certificate.

Certificates will display that it was an online virtual workshop that was undertaken and we would recommend that following the online workshop participants should undertake a face-to-face workshop rather than an online refresher in 3 years’ time when required.


If you wish to register for any of these courses please use the link supplied – any enquiries should be directed to workshops@sportni.net
