Safety training

The Scout Association's ongoing safety training e-learning is an online alternative to face-to-face training.

This has been designed using the objectives, key messages and training material produced for the face-to-face delivery of the course.

Who should complete the training?

The training is available to anyone who wants to complete it. However, it is primarily aimed at volunteers who need to complete their ongoing safety training for review. New volunteers should complete Module 1: Essential Information, and if completing a Wood Badge, Module 17: Running Safe Activities (for Section Leaders) or Module 23: Safety for Managers and Supporters.

Find out more information on the Ongoing Safety Training.

Safety training

The training will take approximately 35 minutes.

There are three sections within the training:

  1. Get the facts
  2. See it in action
  3. Take the challenge

After completing the first two sections you will be asked to complete the final section, Take the challenge.

After you complete the final section of the training, you will be able to generate a certificate, which can be printed off. Alternatively, you can save the URL and print it off at a later date.

Please do not save the web link as an alternative to printing the certificate, as this will expire once you leave the browser and your certificate will be lost.
