First Aid - Emergency First Aid*

* N.B. This course is awarded through the Football Association and is officially titled "The FA Level 1 Introduction to First Aid in Football", which is what will appear on certificates. However, this course is suitable for people involved in other sports and is not exclusively for those involved in football.

This course will provide you with the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to attend a conscious or unconscious player, ensuring that appropriate care is given until the emergency medical services arrive and takeover, or until an alternative healthcare professional(s) assumes responsibility. It is a practical guide to dealing with the essential components of saving a life, both in training and matches.

Content:

- The role of the first aider
- The jaw thrust as an airway opening technique
- The A-E approach of the injured footballer (inclusive of the unconscious footballer)
- Emergency action planning for football
- Preparation for action for sudden cardiac arrest in the young
- Recognition, BLS with AED
- Breathing for every player during BLS, compression only CPR is not recommended for those first aiders with a duty of care to respond to players during matches and training (this is different context to the lay person attendance in a different environment)
- The FA concussion guidelines
- Dispelling the myths of first aid in football
- The football specific first aid kit and record keeping


This short course is applicable to coaches, team managers, parents, teachers, volunteers and carers who have the responsibility for the provision of basic life support and who may be the only persons present until the ambulance arrives.

Give coaches the knowledge, tools and confidence to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic language and bullying, and create a sports team where LGBT young people can take part and be fully themselves.
The programme has been funded by the Welsh Government, and is kindly hosted by Cardiff Metropolitan University.
