Why do you only accept a small number of first aid courses as an alternative to The FA courses?

A comprehensive review was undertaken by The FA across all medical training provision. One critical outcome of this was the need for football specific training to be included in FA Courses, with an emphasis on saving life and limb in football. The FA Medical Pathway has been revamped to encompass this emphasis and now we are introducing changes to the courses we recognise as alternatives to FA courses, again to ensure training completed is focused on saving a life and limb. A comprehensive mapping exercise has been undertaken to ensure we are recognising the correct courses to ensure our first aiders can save life and limb.
