First qualifications in trampoline park monitoring handed out

Forty members of staff at trampoline park operator Oxygen Freejumping have become the first in the UK to gain the new Level 2 Trampoline Park Court Monitor qualification.

The first formal qualification of its kind, the training programme has been developed by health and safety experts Right Directions and has been given Active IQ Regulated Qualification status.

The three-day training course includes practical scenarios and workshops and an Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) qualification.

Valid for three years, the Level 2 qualification will require court monitors to complete work-based CPD as part of the retention of the certification, which will be completed in-house as ongoing training.

Staff 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 trampolining becoming increasingly popular, there is a clear need to ensure we set high standards for health and safety.

“This qualification will also assist the trampolining park industry to raise their profile and give customers additional confidence that staff who are supervising the parks hold a nationally recognised qualification.”

The first cohort of graduates work at Oxygen Freejumping’s Derby site, and staff at the other eight Oxygen sites have now embarked on the training.

Oxygen currently has nine sites, each with between 30 and 60 frontline staff.

David Stalker, CEO of Oxygen Freejumping, said: “This is the first publicly available training accreditation for the sector and should provide a quality benchmark that all operators adhere to.

“There is too much variation across operators currently with huge gaps in quality, training and ultimately customer safety. The qualification provides a means of every operator improving their standards.”
