This is subject to review depending on the progress of Covid-19. We will be liaising with The FA to have a better understanding for this period and the impacts of individuals not being able to complete the workshop. By way of assistance, please see below the period of validation for a certificate:


Safeguarding Children Workshop - three years

Welfare Officer Workshop - does not have to be renewed after completion

Safeguarding for Committee Members - four years

DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) - three years


If you have previously completed a Safeguarding Children Workshop in person (three hours), you should be able to renew via the online self-recertification.
