What you'll be able to do with this qualification
This is the highest available qualification within our medical pathway, and by completing it you will have the skills to act as the team leader in the event of a life or limb threatening injury in football.
Due to the nature and responsibility associated with first aid provision, and in line with current UK guidelines, the currency of the ATMMiF certificate for use as a first aid qualification will be limited to three years.
We recommend you complete a one-day reaccreditation course each season. To remain qualified and in date you must, as a minimum, complete a further ATMMiF course within the final three months prior to expiry of the qualification.
