About this course
This Basic Sports first aid course is popular with sports, drama and dance coaches working in schools alongside fully qualified first aiders covering extra-curricular activities but do not require an Ofsted compliant qualification.
This course takes into account the Department for Education guidance on first aid for schools. It is ideal for coaches and teachers not on the permanent school staff headcount.
The course covers the same content as the and the recently upgraded FA Emergency Aid (FAEA) course and FA introduction to first aid in football, with the addition of Anaphylaxis and Eppi Pen training. Ideal for parents, volunteers, coaches, trainers, and admin support staff who require an activity-based first aid course
If you are part of a national governing body in sport such as the Lawn Tennis Association, a level 3 EFAW (Emergency First Aid at Work) course may be required. We recommend you contact Sport England, your sport’s national governing body or professional sporting associations for your specific industry sector first aid requirements.
If you have sole charge of children or work for an Ofsted registered club or facility and do not have a fully qualified PFA or FAW First Aider on site, you will need to take our emergency paediatric first aid 6 hour course (EPFA) or the full 12 hour paediatric first aid course (PFA) Visit our first aid for childcare providers page to learn more.
