BTEC Courses 2013


Playground safety is becoming an increasingly important factor in our lives. In the UK we probably lead the world in terms of equipment specification and the provision of safer surfacing for our playground environments; yet until very recently we have not been able to provide a nationally recognised qualification for Operators and Inspectors of playgrounds.

Increasing demands from the Health & Safety Executive around the country will ensure that current Health & Safety Legislation is applied rigorously.

Recognising the need for an independently accredited qualification Rynat has worked in conjunction with Edexcel to formulate a BTEC Level 3 Award for Playground Operation and Inspection.

Playground Inspection, Operation & Maintenance
