First Aid for Sport and Exercise – FASE 2

Enhance your sports first aid knowledge and skills to improve the care you give, when working alone or supporting a pitch-side medical team.

Providing first aid pitch-side can be overwhelming and it’s essential that you are prepared to meet your responsibilities when providing treatment or when asked to support a medical team.

First Aid for Sport and Exercise 2 is designed to develop your core basic skills and knowledge learnt on FASE 1. It will enable you to provide more advanced treatment options when working without direct supervision at sporting events or to be part of a medical team supporting Doctors, Paramedics, Physios and other Health Professionals. More advanced first aid skills are vital for coaches, volunteers & stewards that form part of a pitch-side support team.

Many sports organisations, colleges and schools are now making attendance on an advanced sport-specific first aid course compulsory for staff covering sports events. This course is suitable for all non-medical professionals working in the world of sports & exercise and is ideal for students on work placements.

Over 2 days, FASE 2 is a highly practical and interactive course with attendee participation absolutely essential to the learning. As healthcare professionals working in sport, instructors draw on their extensive experience & knowledge in managing traumatic sporting injuries. Your questions and real-life examples are always encouraged in a relaxed but professional environment.

FASE 2 is the second step in the ‘Sports Trauma Pathway’. If you are looking to develop your basic first aid skills, this course is for you.
