If you are looking to get qualified, or simply learn more about working with crowds, this course is definitely for you. Whether you work in a sporting arena, stadium or for a company that runs outdoor and indoor sporting events, learn the essential elements of risk analysis and the variable factors of crowds with us.

The course provides crucial insight into many aspects of spectator safety, including event control, stewarding and security, leadership, decision making, medical provisions, dealing with illegal activities, missing children and many more.

Our Spectator Safety Management course is available in a number of different formats, each designed to support the diverse needs of every individual. For example, the five-day course can be developed further into an NVQ Level 4, giving you a qualification that recognises your competence within spectator safety working situations.

You can choose to attend the course separately or add the qualification assessment in order to achieve a full NVQ level 4. For those delegates already holding all the necessary knowledge and experience, the assessment alone is available without having to attend the course. Please contact us if you are interested in completing the assessment only. 

Who is This Course For?

This course is suitable for Event Managers and all those who work within a crowd environment, such as arenas, stadia and other sporting events. It is ideal for Safety Officers who are required to hold a Level 4 NVQ in spectator safety management, as outlined in the Safety at Sports Grounds Guidance (Green Guide). Essentially, any individual wanting to move, or already involved in this area of work, will benefit greatly from completing this course.
