British Fencing publishes once a month, in the first week of the month, a list of BFA Coaches together with their relevant weapon qualifications. Entry onto the list also requires that the coach must have current certification showing the coach has DBS (previously CRB), must hold an Emergency First Aid at Work, or First Aid at Work (6 hr course only one acceptable) in the last 3 years – A Safeguarding and Protecting Children Certificate in the last 3 years, and must be a current Full member of British Fencing. Only those over 18 years of age may be on the Register.
The list is currently updated to March, and can be found here: Coaches Register
Complying with the decision taken by the FIE (International Fencing Federation) at its Congress last November, British Fencing is banning the use of transparent (“Vision”) masks for all fencing with metal weapons. The ban comes into force on 1st March, 2014.
The full BFA article can be found here: http://britishfencing.com/news/latest-news/?n=980
Following further clarification, we can confirm that this is a total ban, and that the ban also applies to use in club fencing.
