Child Protection Officers course

Hi All,
Please see below details of upcoming courses. Another Child Protection Officers course will be run shortly. As the Children’s first bill has come in all people involved with children and people that may be at risk must complete the below course. Each club must also have a child protection officer and attend the training. All volunteers must also be garda vetted please contact your league to enquire if this has not already been done. All of these have to be completed by March. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
