First Aid in Rugby (FAIR) Courses give you the opportunity to gain rugby-specific first aid skills. Delivered by experienced practitioners with rugby expertise, a World Rugby recognised FAIR qualification will give you the skills to immediately assist an injured player.

The courses are open to anyone in the rugby community – volunteers, coaches, referees, physios, players, sports coordinators, parents and everyone else interested.

Course structure

The course is made up of an online pre-course theory component and a hands-on practical session taken by our specialist educators.

The hands-on course is delivered in an eight-hour session and there is approximately eight hours of pre-course work.  This pre-course work is essential so you can get maximum benefit from the hands-on practical session.

On completion of the course to the required standard, you will receive a World Rugby FAIR qualification certificate and a FAIR kit bag(worth over $100) with equipment used on the course, sponsored by USL Medical.
