Event Safety Course
Introducing Orienteering Course

The British Orienteering eLearning Event Safety Course

Attendance at a British Orienteering Event Safety and Welfare Workshop is a mandatory requirement for all Organisers, Planners, Controllers and other key officials at all levels of British Orienteering registered Events.

Attendance and certification on an Event Safety eLearning course are equivalent of an Event Safety face to face workshop.

The course aims to provide for both current and prospective event organisers and planners an overview of the safety requirements and issues that may arise in staging an orienteering event. It has a particular focus on risk management and the means of controlling risks at acceptable levels. We anticipate that those undertaking the course will have had previous experience in carrying out risk assessments.             

This interactive activity will support the learner to understand how to identify, access and control to an acceptable level the risks involved with an event.

This eLearning course is currently cost-free until 31st December 2020, from 1st January 2021 the price will be £10.00 , the course will take approximately an hour to complete and you will also receive the following:
