You can also find details of nearby courses on Tobar.  Anyone working around children in a Gaelic Games setting must complete a Child Safeguarding course every 3 years. The Child Safeguarding 1 online Refresher Course launched in September 2019 allows coaches and other volunteers who have already attended a full face to face Safeguarding 1 session in the past 3 years to refresh the course online. It is also important to note that one cannot complete 2 online refresher courses in succession - a refresher course MUST be followed by a full workshop if one is to maintain their cover.  It is an interactive eLearning course split into 6 separate modules.   If you have questions about courses or want to request that a course be put on please pass on that information to This email address is being protected from spambots.
