First Aid & Safeguarding Advice

First Aid
It is not a requirement to complete a First Aid Qualification to gain certification for a hockey coaching qualification. However, we strongly recommend all coaches attend a certificated Emergency First Aid Course lasting a minimum of three hours and including CPR training. A refresher or re-certification is required every three years.

Safeguarding
To gain certification for a qualification all coaches must have accessed one of the following workshops. Certificates are valid for three years.

Please note: Completing the online England Hockey safeguarding course is not accepted for certification and therefore one of the following must also be completed.

If you are still not sure which safeguarding and protecting workshop is best for you then please download a useful diagram here.

Insurance
We strongly recommend all coaches have their own appropriate insurance, which can be gained here via the England Hockey Coaches Membership.
