First Aid for Sport, Exercise and Leisure
4 hours

The First Aid for Sport, Exercise and Leisure course content includes essential basic life support and sport injury management.

This is a short course covering essential first aid knowledge and techniques, including basic life support and sport injury management. It is suitable for many Sports Governing Body Coaching Qualifications.

This is the entry level qualification for coaches, spectators and other involved people and is delivered in an active sports context.


Our Instructors come from a range of professional and voluntary backgrounds such as:

  • emergency services (ambulance, police and fire service)
  • military (medics)
  • outdoor professionals (Mountain leaders)
  • Community Responders
  • Experienced First Aiders

We aim to match instructors to your specific training requirements. They are aware of the specific needs of various outdoor environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful, dangerous and remote situations.


Our training is very practical and hands on. We do not rely upon the usual ‘death by PowerPoint’, instead we use progressive incident scenario based training methods. Our courses teach techniques proven to work in real life incidents and not just in a classroom. Our training builds confidence and develops first aid skills into complete incident management.




All candidates must attend the full course to qualify. Each candidate is continuously assessed throughout.


The First Aid for Sport, Exercise and Leisure is valid for 3 years. It can be revalidated by completing the same course again within 3 years.

It is also ‘highly recommended’ that workplace First Aiders attend an Annual Basic Skills Refresher course.


Our awarding body for Emergency First Aid at Work qualifications is either through Pro Trainings or ITC.

ITC First is authorised and regulated by Ofqual and the SQA

Pro Trainings Authorises our Qualifications and can also provide Regulated Certificates through TQUK


In-house course for 12 candidates
