Activity First Aid Course

Activity first aid training would be a terrific asset to the sports training and coaching professions since it covers both professional and personal concerns.

This all-inclusive, hands-on first aid course will teach you how to diagnose and treat a wide range of medical issues, as well as how to administer effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) with confidence and safety.

Also covered is the difficulty of providing first aid in a remote outdoor location without medical personnel.

After completing our hands-on first aid course, participants will be able to recognise and respond appropriately to a broad range of medical emergencies.

This course is OFQUAL-regulated (England’s government regulator) and accredited by Qualifications Network UK.
