First Aid for Sports Coaches and Exercise Professionals

exercise class first aidFirst Aid for Sports Coaches and Exercise Professionals

We specialise in First Aid for Sport and Fitness. Unlike other providers we don’t simply do our normal course and add in a few sports incidents.

We have courses specifically developed for sports coaches, fitness instructors teachers and club coaches. We can work with you if you are from most sporting backgrounds – football, rugby, hockey, boxing, fitness and gym instructors, and many more.

Courses are tailored to the needs of teachers, coaches and sports therapists who are at the sharp end. When someone takes a tumble and isn’t getting up, you need to know what to do!

We can run the course at your venue for group sizes of four people upwards and have a progressive suite of courses designed to match your requirements.

Our courses meet the HSE standards for ‘Due Diligence‘ for first aid providers.

Practical, suitable training courses across Scotland – from one of the country’s leading providers

Founded by experienced practitioners, First Aid Training Co-operative specialises in outdoor first aid.

In fact, we’ve provided more than 3,700 hours of outdoor first aid training in the last 3 years alone, and have over 60 public courses on our calendar, making us the biggest provider of open First Aid courses in Scotland.

And since all our trainers are experienced outdoor practitioners themselves (as well as professionally qualified teachers who easily surpass HSE Due Diligence requirements) we understand the specifics of what you really need to know.

“Very good course and amazingly instructed” – D. MacDougall

“Really informative, enjoyable and instructor very knowledgeable” – S. Young

But more than that, we understand that you don’t want to be stuck inside on some dreary, slide-heavy snorefest of a training session.

And why around 70% of the course consists of practical activities.

So you can actually learn by doing, hone your skills there and then, out in the open, and leave with the confidence that you’ll know exactly what to do when the situation arises.

Perhaps that’s why we frequently receive comments like this:
