emergency pitchside first aid courses aimed at medical and non

The level one course is designed for coaches, officials, referees, players, parents and guardians.

• Irish Heart Foundation BLS/AED training
• Dealing with the unconscious player
• Head and neck injures
• Fractures and joint injuries
• Common medical emergencies
• Match day preparedness
The course is practical in nature and most of the course will be spent practicing new skills
and dealing with realistic field emergency scenarios.
The SAFE-Rugby Level one course is organised at various venues around each province
on an ongoing basis. The course can be midweek or at weekends and it
may be possible to run a course at your club/school.
