COURSE DETAILS

The FA Level 1 Introduction to First Aid in Football provides 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.

This course goes beyond generic first aid and includes elements specific to football.

The course will cover:

  • 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
