RLSS Water Safety Management Programme

The Adventure Programme Team at Gilwell are aware that those Leaders who need to renew Level 3 of their Water Safety Management qualifications have been having issues finding training.

Having been in touch with the RLSS, the programme team are going to help them organise some courses so that our members can access them, but they need us to provide them with numbers and locations.

If anyone in the County needs this training can you please let Tony Best know (with names and numbers) by Friday 20th February so that he can forward the information to the Activities office, who will then work with the RLSS to organise the training and let participants know when they can register. We appreciate that this is a very tight deadline but we know there are a number of people quite eager to get on these courses.
