Welcome to the ProTrainings' Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults online training course.

Commonly referred to as SOVA, this training course is aimed at a wide variety of industry sectors and individuals, we can only talk generally so you will need to discuss protection policies at your workplace to ensure compliance and effectiveness.

To complete your training you will watch a series of videos, followed by knowledge review questions, then complete the final test at the end. You do not need to complete the course in one sitting, you can start and stop at any time and return to the course where you left off. You can watch any videos again, at any time, during and after the course.

The course can be viewed on any device, meaning you can start the course on your computer and finish it on your smartphone or tablet at a different time.

On each page of the course, there is text available to read on the subject being covered, to further support the video, and additional help is available if you initially answer a question incorrectly.

Subtitles can be viewed by clicking the CC icon. You can change the size and colour of the subtitles from the bottom right of the player and you can select from the options on the bottom right of the player to show an additional smaller video that stays on the screen as you read the text, allowing you to read and watch the video at the same time.

You can choose to either watch the videos through our standard video player, direct from our site, or by using YouTube player. You can select this option from underneath the video. Once you change settings, the whole course will be changed unless you change it back again.

Once you have successfully passed the test you can print off your certificate of completion. If at any time in the future you require another copy this can be printed from the home page of the course, along with your Certified CPD statement and your evidence-based learning statement.

Your course includes many recourses and links to support your training, these can be accessed from the home page of the course. We are constantly updating our courses, so check back regularly to view any new material. We give you access to the course for 8 months from when you started it, even after you've passed your test.
