Sussex First Aid Courses

Sports First Aid

This 1-day sports first aid course focuses on how to treat sport-related injuries – from sprains, strains and fractures through to life-threatening injuries.

 

 

The physicality of sport means that injury is an ever-present danger. In lines of work where you are responsible for athletes or sports players, it may be inevitable that you will have to deal with an injury at some point in the future.

 

Our sports first aid course gives you the latest knowledge, skills and techniques to treat many of the most common sports injuries with confidence. This includes bumps and scrapes and breaks through to life-threatening problems such as head or spinal injuries.

 

When the right treatment is applied swiftly and accurately to an athlete under your care, it can alleviate pain, prevent the problem from getting worse and ultimately help to improve the rate of healing.


We are able to conduct group training sessions at your venue or you may wish to join one of our open public courses of which we run various dates throughout the year, see details to the right.
