Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations match in February, while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
Topics include BLS, AED, concussion, head and spinal management, chest injuries, fracture management, player immobilisation and removal.
The content will take the form of presentations with the majority of the course delivered as scenario based learning in small groups.
The IRFU will also be launching Level 1 SAFE-Rugby courses in early 2013 which is a rugby specific first aid course for non-medical personnel involved with clubs and schools, e.g. coaches, referees, parents, officials and players.
If you are interested in attending a Level 1 course please register your interest via email to Niamh Nash. Registration for the courses will begin in 2013.
