The registration fee is a one-off payment made when joining. Both full and guest members then pay per training session.

If you do not attend training for a two-year period, your membership will lapse and you will be required to re-apply and be re-inducted.

If you were previously a full member, you will not have to pay the registration fee again but you will be required to pay a re-activation fee of £5.

Open Training Induction

Once your application has been approved, you will be required to attend an induction at your first training session.

Public Liability Insurance (PLI)

Public Liability Insurance is not mandatory but it’s good practice to have PLI if you are training and performing regularly.
