Safeguarding Training During COVID-19 Restrictions

Updated 07/04/2020

Safeguarding Courses During COVID-19 Restrictions from 26 Mar

Irish Sailing in consultation with Sport Ireland Ethics Unit are implementing the following solution during the current restrictions as there is a backlog of people looking to attend safeguarding workshop. This interim solution shall stay in place until the sector is in a position to resume normal operations and people can attend the rescheduled Safeguarding 1 face to face workshops.

When required for instructor certification the following steps must be taken after completion of the instructor course:

  1. Complete the free online Tusla’s Children First eLearning programme
  2. Complete the free online Sport Ireland’s Safeguarding 1 online refresher
  3. Email a copy of both these online certificates, in PDF format, to Nuala at with your name, address, date of birth and instructor course date.
  4. Your Certificate will be valid for the coming season and you must attend a safeguarding 1 face to face workshop within 6 months of the resumption of activities in the sector, or as soon as possible.

If you have any queries in relation to any of the above or any other matter please do not hesitate to contact or
