Active IQ and Right Directions have launched a Level 2 qualification for court monitors in trampoline parks to help boost safety and confidence.

Developed by health and safety and quality management specialists Right Directions, the training qualification is the first of its kind for the sector with Active IQ providing regulated qualification status.

Right Directions delivers Sport England’s quality scheme Quest, as well as ukactive’s Code of Practice and Swim England Learn to Swim accreditation.

It has been working in the trampoline sector for the past two years and has developed a Trampoline Park Safety Operating Plan in partnership with Oxygen Freejumping.

Court monitors watch everyone on trampolines, ensuring safety.

The Level 2 Trampoline Park Court Monitor qualification comprises three days of training alongside practical scenarios and workshops and consists of five modules. Qualified court monitors will also be required to hold a Level 2 Emergency First Aid at Work certificate.

The qualification will be valid for three years and court monitors will be required to complete work-based CPD as part of the retention of the certification, which will be completed in-house as ongoing training. Once qualified, court monitors will be required to attend a one-day refresher course every three years and renew their Emergency First Aid certificate.

Gill Twell, head of group development and Quest operations for Right Directions, said: “With the popularity in trampolining on the rise, there is a clear need to ensure we set high standards of health and safety and customer service to protect the public and invest in training for trampoline park staff so they can fulfil their role with confidence and skill. This will also assist the trampolining industry to raise their profile and give customers additional confidence that staff who are supervising the parks hold a national recognised qualification.”

Laura Sheasby, Active IQ head of business development, said: “Trampolining is a relatively new sector in the leisure industry but it’s growing fast. In the same way that operators ensure their pools are managed by qualified staff and skilled lifeguards, those that offer trampoline lessons, competitions and parties, must maintain high safety standards.”
