Sporting event organisers have a responsibility for calculating the safe capacity of their venues. Any venue such as a stadium, training site, fan zone, temporary structure… used for a sporting event will have a required safety certificate which states the safe capacity of that venue.

In this course, participants will be introduced to the concept of calculating safe capacity for a sporting venue based on the best practices and research developed by the Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA).

This course is delivered online via e-Learning using the ICSS’s Learning Management System (LMS). The participants are responsible for managing their own learning over the three (3) week duration.
