Assessment and Certification
There is no formal assessment for this course. It is an ongoing assessment of the candidate’s skills throughout the day. On successful completion of the course the candidate will receive a certificate which is valid for 3 years from the date of the course.
The course is run in a friendly, relaxed way where the emphasis is on learning whilst enjoying the course. There is an element of theory to First Aid but we strive to make sure everyone has as much practical experience as possible.
Our overall aim is for everyone completing the course to feel confident in their ability to deal with a first aid incident in a sports environment.
“I coach a football team and needed a first aid qualification. I found the course to be fun with clear explanations on dealing with a variety of injuries that may occur on a sports pitch”
