If there isn't a BMC safeguarding or child protection workshop available that you can attend there may, however, be a course that you can attend run by UK Coaching. It is perfectly acceptable to attend one of their workshops as it contains the same information as a BMC course and the attendance certificates are identical. Check out UK Coaching courses here

As the climbing walls, crags and mountains start to open, we wanted to say thanks to every BMC member who supported us through the Coronavirus crisis.
From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t have made it without you.
