FA Support Portal

I have completed one of the courses listed as a recognised alternative to FA first aid courses, how do I get this added to my FA Number (FAN)?

In order to use a recognised alternative you must have previously completed the equivalent level FA first aid training. For most people this will be The FA Emergency Aid – now known as The FA Level 1 Introduction to First Aid in Football (IFAiF).


If you have previously completed FA first aid training then you will need to complete The FA Sudden Cardiac Arrest and The FA Concussion Guideline modules.


Once you have completed these eLearning modules, please click here to submit this to us - select FA Education from the Topic drop-down and add non-FA medical course certificate as the subject. Attach a copy of your first aid certificate and include your name and FAN.


Once this is received the team will check your certificate is acceptable and whether you have completed the two eLearning modules, and if so, attach it to your FAN. You will receive a confirmation once this is done.
