To be fully compliant the ECB requires Club Safeguarding Officers (CSO) to have a current ECB DBS, ideally be on the DBS Update Service, and complete three sets of training:
Every three years the training requirements above must be updated.
The next Safe Hands courses are lsited below.
You can do a course in a neighbouring county if that is more accessible.
Those registering on a Safe Hands Workshop in the future will automatically receive notification from the ECB following attendance on the workshop to complete the new Safeguarding for Specialist Roles (SSR) course online.

Safeguarding for Specialist Roles (SSR)
The ECB have introduced the Safeguarding for Specialist Roles (SSR) on-line courses which form the foundation for individuals who hold a specialist role within cricket. This course is a direct replacement of the Safeguarding Young Cricketers (SYC) course, although the format has changed, and only needs completing once the SYC has expired.
The new courses are aimed at those who want and need more knowledge and information on effective safeguarding within your club. The courses are free to complete.
Those individuals in cricket who hold a specialist role should complete the one-hour course (worth 80% of their learning), as well as the shorter, specialist module relevant to their role (20% of their learning). Completing both elements is needed to complete the course and get a certificate; it also will update the Safe Hands Management System that a person is compliant.
If someone at your club has more than one role within a club, we recommend they sign up to the course in which they do the most volunteering. Individuals are welcome to complete all four specialist modules if they wish and all are free of charge.
The specialist modules available are:
If you have registered for a course that has an E-Learning component attached to it, you will receive an email shortly after registering on to the course, containing details on how to access the E-Learning site (also known as Moodle); https://elearning.ecb.co.uk
