Hi folks

This is just a reminder that we will be hosting 2 workshops (see details below) on Adventuremark – which is the Non Statutory Adventure Activity Accreditation scheme – that has been approved as a suitable alternative to statutory licensing in Northern Ireland. However, DCAL have not yet repealed the legislation from the Assembly until they get reassurance that there is a reasonable uptake in this. Can I urge you therefore if you haven’t yet booked on one of these sessions – please do consider it – so that you have a clearer understanding of what is involved?

I firmly believe that it is in the industry’s interest to have such a scheme up and running in NI that can give reassurances to your customers, to the Government Agencies that promote adventure activities and to the schools and colleges that use the centres and providers.

Apologies if you’ve already booked on please disregard this email – however, if you or a representative member of staff from your organisation can attend – you would be very welcome.

The session at Tollymore is fairly busy – but so far we only have half a dozen people attending the session at the Share Centre.

Many thanks

Adventuremark Training Workshop

Sport NI is delighted to announce that the Department of Culture Arts and Leisure has approved that Adventuremark be implemented in Northern Ireland as a suitable alternative to a Statutory Licensing scheme for adventure activities.

Sport NI in partnership with the Adventure Activities Industry Advisory Committee (AAIAC) and with support from the NI Tourist Board will be hosting 2 training seminars for activity providers.

These seminars will be run by Iain Peter and Bob Barton from Adventure Activity Associates who manage the Adventuremark scheme on behalf of AAIAC. The aim of them is to help providers get a clear understanding of the process of application and inspection, the potential benefits of accreditation and the support that is provided through the scheme.
