Sports First Aid

Course overview

We love sports and have provided first aid cover at many sporting events. We are at Windsor Rugby Club every Sunday durning the season.

This course is aimed at anyone who requires a course in sports first aid. The course is available as a classroom or a blended class with some online learning. The certificate is valid for 3 years and a recommended annual refresher can be done online.

This course covers basic first aid and is aimed at people who need first aid who work in various sports sectors. It not only covers basic first aid but also all the specific problems that arise in sports including return to play. Primary and secondary subjects are covered, including soft tissue injuries, head injuries, types of cuts, and many illnesses that could arise.

As with all of Green Box's First Aid Courses, the Sports First Aid Course complies with the latest ERC and UK Resuscitation Council Guidelines and can be done as a blended or classroom based course. With Green Box we offer a completely flexible learning structure to enable you to learn at a time that suites you.

The content of this and all Green Box First Aid courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.

Who is this course for?

This is for people who provide first aid cover at sports clubs, events and occasions. It's a great course which will really help you give the appropriate care to those who have been injured or become ill whilst playing sport.
