More Players, Playing More Often


The RFU offers a Suite of Training Courses and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Modules.  Full details can be found here:

RFU Suite of Training Courses (2018-19)

This includes courses on:

  • ​Player Welfare (including Touchline & Clubhouse First Aid, and Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults)

  • Coaching.

  • Refereeing and Match Officiating.

Some of these can be done "en masse" for your club so that many of your volunteers can be trained at the same time.  To do so, contact your RDO for details of the minimum numbers required for each type of course.

Alternatively,  individuals can book on to an RFU course by using this link to the Online Course Booking System:

The GRFU offers subsidies of up to 50% on the RFU coach & refereeing qualification courses and the Emergency First Aid Course, and a full 100% subsidy on the "Play it Safe" Safeguarding Course. To protect funds, course subsidies are paid direct to the club retrospectively upon successful completion of the course.  Full details of the subsidies on offer are available here:
