FA Level 2 Emergency First Aid in Football (EFAiF)

    •  
The overall aim of The FA Level 2 Emergency First Aid in Football (EFAiF) is to raise the standard of first aid provision within football.

It goes beyond generic first aid and includes elements specific to football.

Content

  • The role of the First Aider in football
  • The jaw thrust as an airway opening technique for a contact sport such as football
  • The A-E approach of the injured footballer (inclusive of the unconscious footballer)
  • Emergency Action planning for football
Preparation for action for sudden cardiac arrest in the young
  • Recognition, BLS with AED
  • The FA Concussion guidelines and concussion management from a first aid perspective for football 

  •  Dispelling the myths of first aid in football 

  • The football specific first aid kit and record keeping 

  • Duty of care in football 

  • Medical emergencies in football 

  • Focusing on those illnesses that can lead to life threatening injuries in football 

  • Limb threatening injuries in football 

  • Wounds and bleeding / Fracture management for football 

  • Acute soft tissue injury management in football 

  • Spinal injuries in football, manual in line stabilisation and assisting the ambulance crew with a log roll 

  • Paediatric elements to all of the above 


Both medical courses at Level 1 and 2 are not designed to follow specific first aid at work competencies that are not always relevant to football. The focus is on how to save a life so they don't cover burns, poisoning, minor illness or common sporting injury management. The purpose is injuries or illnesses that are a risk to life or limb within football.

Who is it for?

It is applicable to coaches, team managers, parents, teachers, volunteers and carers who are or may have to act as the designated first aid providers within their club/team environment.

Currency of qualification
