Prompt and effective First Aid in sports can make a hugely positive difference to the time and ability of an athlete to recover from injury. All our sports first aid courses cover basic life support and AED (defibrillator) training whilst keeping the focus on managing incidents and competently assessing whether a casualty should be returning to activity or not.
Certification is dependent on successful continuous assessment of the candidate. Those who complete the course successfully are awarded a certificate that is valid for three years which entitles the candidate to be a First Aider.
