First Aid
First Aid is not a mandatory requirement. However, all Coaches carry a “Duty of Care” for all students under their supervision and the Board highly recommends that all Coaches have an externally  validated HSE approved First Aid award. First Aid qualifications should be assessed, and candidates awarded a certificate of competence, not just a certificate of attendance.
