The content will take the form of presentations with the majority of the course delivered as scenario based learning in small groups.

The cost of the course is €;150 and can be booked online or by emailing Niamh Nash.

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.
