Who is this course for?

This course is open to anyone over the age of 16 who would like to be trained to deal with emergency first aid and treatment of injuries.

On completion, your Emergency First Aid certificate will be valid for 3 years and is a pre-requisite to gaining a ‘pass’ across all FA Coaching qualification levels.
