First Aid for Personal Trainers and Sports Coaches

See Scheduled DatesBooking for a Group or Need help?
The Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course adapted for Sports is a one day course covering care of the unconscious casualty as well as commonly occurring injuries in adults and children. During the course, you will not only learn basic emergency first aid, but also first aid specific to exercise and sports.

Our course uniquely adds in additional areas to the EFAW syllabus and covers heart attacks, head and spinal injuries as well as asthma and other elements of First Aid crucial to sports. We are also able to adapt our courses to specific requests if you have anything additional that you need to cover.

You can book a bespoke course at your workplace or home, or you can book a place on one of our scheduled courses which are held at our company headquarters in Balham.

 

Just to say thank you for yesterday’s course.  I appreciated you making the time to answer all my questions and found the format and location very user friendly.  You fitted in a lot of very useful information in a short amount of time, helping to both refresh and update my first aid knowledge. An invaluable course both in respect to teaching a contact sport as well as being a mother of a boisterous, tree climbing boy!

I attended a 3 hour emergency First Aid course extremely well delivered by Jenny. She covered so many topics and... presented them in an easy to remember practical manner. She was also able to stimulate and answer several questions from the group around and on a tangent to the topic. I feel much more confident now.read more

Excellent course. Very easy to navigate and full of invaluable information and skills that everyone should have. My son... did this for his Duke of Edinburgh Skills section and really enjoyed it. Modules to test you knowledge after topics and a certificate of achievement at the end. Emma completes the Assessor report too. Very well organised.read more

Thoroughly enjoyed this First Aid course. The course was brilliant, not only did it take place in a air conditioned... room on one of the hottest days of the month, but the course was very hands on with lots of opportunity to practice the life saving techniques. The course instructor Steve was truly exceptional, he communicated well, was very knowledgeable and interacted well with all the delegates. I would definitely use First Aid for Life again and again and am happy to recommend them.read more

We used First Aid for Life for some in-house First Aid training for the coaches and managers at our cricket club. Those... who participated came away with a lot more confidence and knowledge on how to support club members who may need first aid, and also what pro-active measures should be in place to minimise risk as much as possible. A great session, thanksread more

I've had over 20 years of First Aid courses in various locations and environments. Without exception this was the... best. From the get go we were very well informed and kept up to date with information during the COVID-19 developments and it's subsequent restrictions and limitations. The course was very well attended (including 5 of my own Team) by a diverse crowd with varying experience and requirements. These were all answered and handled exceptionally. Clarity in explanation and understanding was second to none and it's the very first time a course leader has not only explained the biomechanics of certain situations and techniques but also applied relevant, practical and common sense! Cannot recommend them enough.read more
