The Army Rugby Union provides RFU training and education through a variety of courses and CPD’s. As a coach within the ARU at Unit, Corps or Representative level we expect you to hold a minimum ERCA whilst continuing to attend CPD throughout the season. The ARU will run several CPD events throughout the season along with accredited RFU CPD’s across the UK, Germany and Cyprus.

Bespoke Unit and Corps Training offers can be discussed, if you have a nominal role of candidates, adequate facility and space for the course to take place.
