SAFE training for Aquatic, Sport & Leisure facilities- Level 1

As an organisation providing programs and services for children, you have a legal obligation to provide a child safe environment and to train your staff in accordance with the national child safety standards.

To assist the sports, leisure and aquatic sector with this requirement we have developed a specific child safety training program.
