Giffnock Soccer Centre
Giffnock Soccer centre(150 coaches) approached Safeaid 2 years ago to provide Sports First Aid training that is SYFA approved. 40 Coaches at GSC have completed the workshops and the general feedback is this course is fantastic as David and the team provide a practical First Aid course that is easy to understand and for me focused on football related injuries across all age groups.
Great course, learned more from this course than I did form any other First Aid course, worth the money and the interaction from the group made the course very relaxing

Just wanted to thank you for the great course on Friday. Everybody was very impressed with the course and your delivery. As you can imagine I do often dread doing the first aid course as I have done a few in my career, “being of such a great age!” I have to say that it was by far the most enjoyable, educational and informative first aid course that I have done without exception!
