Emergency First Aid at Work and Activity First Aid
A programme to ensure safer sport
Each year there are almost 20 million reported sporting injuries in the UK. Between 150-160 people die and many more are disabled for life. In a report produced for the Sports Councils for England, Scotland and Wales during 1991, it was calculated that over 3 million injuries remained untreated. Year on year, these figures have remained substantially unaltered.
This course covers the practical skills needed by a first aider in the sports setting. The course will give you the confidence and knowledge to deal with first aid emergencies.
Course duration 12 hours.
