Garda Vetting is a requirement for all coaches and other persons within the Club who work with children. For full details of the process, please go to the FAI website at http://www.fai.ie/domestic/safeguarding/garda-vetting where you will find the required forms.
Please note that your “Garda Vetting ID Validation Form” must be reviewed and signed by a member of the Executive Committee of the Club (usually the Child Protection Officer (CPO)) before it is submitted to the FAI. The CPO will assist you with the process if you have any questions.
Once you receive your “Acceptance Letter” from the FAI at the conclusion of the Garda Vetting process, you should provide a soft-copy to the CPO for the Club’s records.
Garda Vetting must be renewed every five years.
