The RYA Safe and Fun Course is a requirement for all newly qualified Level 2 Racing Coaches, RYA Dinghy Instructors, RYA Keelboat Instructors, RYA Windsurf Instructors and RYA Senior Instructors to complete the Safe and Fun course before their Instructor training course begins. Other centre and club staff/volunteers may find the course useful to help them understand their safeguarding responsibilities. The course is delivered online and can be completed at the user’s leisure with a certificate being issued at the end. The RYA estimate the course equates to the same as 3 hours of classroom teaching and you may take more or less time to complete the course.
A taster video of the course can be accessed here – Safe & Fun Course Taster Video
This includes the course and online/telephone support from our Instructors if needed.
