THE South West Peninsula League have announced that, through the funding it receives from the Football Association Development Plan, it is able to run a number of FREE first aid training to clubs in membership of the league.
Participants will receive an FA Emergency Aid Certificate, valid for three years, and is the minimum qualification that each host club should provide on first team home match day.
Places are limited to a dozen per venue and locally the venue is the Exeter Civil Service Club, Exwick, Exeter on Thursday, September 9.
The course is three hours in duration from 6.30pm to 9.30pm and include dealing with heart attacks, shock, severe trauma, artificial respiration (inc practical application on dummies), stopping bleeding and recovery positions etc.
Locally we have Exmouth Town, Budleigh Salterton, Royal Marines AFC and Ottery St Mary as members of the League.
The SWP League Secretary Phil Hiscox is the man to contact for the course bookings – contact can be made with Phil via the very informed SWP League website which can be visited at www.swpleague.co.uk.
