first aid requirements

Unlike the Outdoor national governing bodies who demand a 16 hour, assessed first aid course, many sporting bodies only require an appointed persons course. These courses offer the basic life-saving skills but very seldom do they cover the decisions which need to be make in a sporting scenario. It's one of the reasons we offer a 14 hour sports specific course which covers the decisions you may face should you have to deal with a sports incident.

Sporting links are being researched and will be added once we have a definitive list.
