More advanced BMC Child Protection training
If there isn't a BMC safeguarding or child protection course available that you can attend there may, however, be a course that you can attend run by Sportscoach UK. It is perfectly acceptable to attend one of their courses as it contains the same information as a BMC course and the attendance certificates are identical.
