FASE (First Aid for Sport and Exercise) is Lubas Medical’s own professional sports-specific first aid course. If you are new to first aid for sport, or if it has been more than 12 months since you last completed any formal first aid training, the FASE Level 1 course is highly recommended.
Our FASE courses are delivered by experienced healthcare professionals who specialise in sports-related injuries. The course is ACPSEM-recognised to bronze level, and it meets the standard set by the UEFA Guide to Minimum Medical Requirements 2013/14. FASE is tailored to be appropriate for all forms of sport and exercise, including football, rugby, gymnastics, cycling, and so on.
FASE 1 is designed to teach you the essentials of first aid for sport and exercise. Over the duration of this six-hour course, you will learn how to safely approach an injured person, identify their injury, and apply basic treatment for a variety of common sporting injuries, including wounds, fractures, dislocations, and head/neck injuries.
Who should attend?
Sporting casualties can’t always be treated by a trained paramedic or medical professional. If you could ever be responsible for treating a sport- or exercise-related injury, the Level 1 First Aid for Sport and Exercise course is ideal for you.
Here are some of the people who have benefitted from our sport first aid course in the past:
- Personal Trainers
- Coaches and Instructors
- Games/P.E. Teachers
This course will provide you with essential first aid skills and the confidence to administer treatment when necessary. If you are already a medical professional, we recommend our more advanced Sports Trauma Management
Who delivers the FASE training?
The best thing about the FASE course is the fact that it is run by medical professionals with years of sporting experience. You will be taught by one of Lubas Medical’s first aid experts, and they will ensure that you understand and enjoy every part of the course.
What topics will the course cover?
Here’s a breakdown of the FASE 1 course’s content:
- Approaching the Injured Person- Learn to safely approach the casualty, identify whether or not they are still conscious, and administer CPR if necessary.

What qualification will I receive?

While FASE 1 certification is valid for 3 years, we strongly recommend returning for an annual refresher course (FASE 1 refresher courses last for 3 hours and cost £29 plus VAT).
