The FA Emergency Aid

The FA Emergency Aid course aims to provide the participant with the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to be able to attend a conscious or unconscious casualty, ensuring that appropriate care is given until the emergency medical services arrive and takeover, or until an alternative healthcare professional(s), assumes responsibility for the casualty. It will offer basic advice on how to limit the effects of injury and promote recovery.

 The FA Emergency Aid


The course is for individuals, e.g. team managers, coaches, teachers, parents, volunteers and others, who have the responsibility for the provision of basic life support. 

It is highly recommended that course participants undertake The FA Basic First Aid for Sport (BFAS) course to complement the skills they acquire during this course. Accreditation of prior learning (APL) is awarded for the Emergency Aid component of the BFAS course (providing the BFAS course is undertaken within six months of completion of the Emergency Aid course).
