Essential Training

Volunteers are expected to attend four essential training modules and repeat these every three years, to ensure their knowledge and skills are up to date. It is vital that volunteers are equipped to deal with any issues that might arise in their clubs and ensure that they can provide a safe environment for members and volunteers. These modules are offered regularly as part of a rolling programme.
