Online Safeguarding Children Recertification
Online Safeguarding Children Re-certification
The FA recommends that everyone working with under 18s obtains a fresh Safeguarding Children every three years.
FA Licensed Coaches Club members and coaches working in under-18s teams in Charter Standard clubs are required to do this.
Re-certification can be done by completing the new, free online course which can be taken in the learner’s own time, at their own pace or by re-attending a safeguarding children workshop delivered by the CFA.
Launched in autumn 2016, the new online course is available to anyone who has an existing Safeguarding Children Workshop qualification or re-certification that is over two years old.
It includes material on safer practice with under-18s, safer use of social media, safeguarding disabled children, listening to children, recognising and responding to poor practice and abuse and how and when to report safeguarding concerns.
