Our friends at reactfirst.co.uk are running a Fitness first aid course at Chamonix Gym on 24th May. Scroll down for more info, and drop us a line if you're interested - invaluable and affordable - how can you say no?! Email info@chamonixgym.com

Fitness First Aid

The Fitness First Aid course is a great introduction to first aid in a sport and fitness environment.  It is specifically designed to meet the needs of Sports Therapists, Group Exercise Instructors and Coaches who simply need a one day course to keep their UK instructor qualification valid. The course is part of the Scottish Qualifications framework and allows you to register CPD points with REPs and other organisations and the relevant parts of the course are taught according to the UK and European Resuscitation Council guidelines. The certificate entitles the candidate to be a First Aider for 3 years from date of issue. There are no pre-requisites to attend this course.
The course will be delivered by Charlie Holmes who is our Head of Training and most experienced Sports First Aid trainer. He is only in Chamonix for a few days, so we've fit this course in to take advantage of his being in town. 

We need a minimum of 6 people for the course to run, so if you are interested it would be great to hear from you.  If you like the sound of the course but can't make this date, let me know and i'll keep you informed of any future dates too.

£80 per head (UK pounds)
