Sports First Aid Courses

Sport SprinterPrompt 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.

We have a full programme of 1 and 2 day sports first aid courses running in Central London for the public to attend. We run private courses across the UK for sports clubs, fitness centres and universities. 

The 1 day Fitness Sports First Aid course - ITC Level 3 Award in First Aid for Sport, Exercise and Fitness is suitable for:

  • Sports Therapists
  • Massage Therapists
  • Sports Coaches and Leaders
  • Group Exercise Instructors
  • Gym Instructors
  • Personal Trainers
  • Martial Arts

If you need an FA Sports First Aid course, the 1 day Level 3 Award in First Aid for Sport, Exercise and Fitness will be accepted instead of the FA Level 1 IFAiF at the point of recertification.

World Rugby also recognise this course to be equivalent to the World Rugby Level 1 - First Aid in Rugby (FAIR) sports first aid course. Outside of professional rugby where World Rugby provide set criteria and courses for medical training, most physiotherapists working with rugby teams choose to attend our 2 day pitch-side sports first aid course.

Our 2 day Pitch-side Sports First Aid course with AED training is focused on delivering first aid in a pitch-side sports environment and the immediate, temporary care of sport related illness and injuries. It is suitable for:

  • Physiotherapists and Osteopaths
  • Sports Coaches and Leaders in pitchside sports like Rugby, Hockey etc
  • PE Teachers
  • Rugby and other Sports Club Members

If you have any questions about the ability of our sports first aid courses to fulfil insurance, governing body or employer requirements please email or call with details of their requirements and we will be happy to tell you which course is the most suitable for your needs.

There are no pre-requisites to attend this course.
