FREE FIRST AID COURSES!
The league are funding a Basic First Aid Course for member clubs. We have courses arranged with both the Wiltshire FA and Somerset FA. The course either lasts 6 hours or 9 hours on depending whether candidates already have the 1st For Sport First Aid Qualification.
The FA Basic First Aid for Sport course is a foundation sports first aid course and the recommended minimum qualification for any person providing pitchside support of sports activities.
The course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of:
- General duties and responsibilities of a sports first aider
- Common football/ sports injuries
- Basic knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to recognise and differentiate major from minor injury
- Ability to administer basic first aid to a casualty engaged in sports activity
Anyone interested in attending either of these courses should contact General Secretary, Mark Edmonds
