The EFAW (Emergency First Aid at Work) and EFAW+ Sports)are both first aid courses, but the EFAW+Sports is specifically designed for sports coaches and competitors. The EFAW+Sports course covers the same topics as the EFAW course, but it also includes additional information on muscle and bone injuries, as well as how to assist a drowning casualty. This additional information is important for sports coaches and competitors because they may be more likely to encounter these types of injuries or accidents.

Here is a table that summarizes the key differences between the two courses:

FeatureEFAWEFAW+ Sports
Course duration6 hours7 hours
Topics coveredAdult and child first aid, heart attack, head and spinal injury, asthma, anaphylaxis, and acute allergic reactionAll of the topics covered in the EFAW course, plus muscle and bone injuries, and drowning
Target audienceEmployees who work in a workplace that is required to have first aid trained staffSports coaches and competitors
The course has been approved by UK Athletics as a Category B first aid training requirement
UK Athletics regards First Aid as an essential skill for all Coaches and Leaders and considers that they
have a responsibility to maintain their competency in this area. UK Athletics recommends that all
Leaders and Coaches undertake an appropriate level of first aid training. This is mandatory for all new
Coaches and Leaders entering the qualification pathway and is a condition of the Coach licencing
scheme. 
Category B: Where Coaches and Leaders are delivering athletic activities, and where the athletic
activity takes place without a First Aider immediately available, UK Athletics strongly recommends
that existing Coaches and Leaders have an in-date First Aid Training Certificate as a minimum standard.
We would expect this to be at training locations where the expected response time for help is between
10 and 30 minutes.
