World Rugby -SRU Medical Courses
First Aid in Sport (F.A.I.R)
Immediate Care in Rugby (I.C.I.R)

World Rugby (formerly IRB) has recognised the requirement and the lack of validated pre-hospital based courses which specifically addressed the needs of collision sports and particularly rugby union. While catastrophic and life or limb threatening injuries are not common in rugby, it is essential when they do occur that the attending personnel are appropriately prepared and trained for such incidents.

The courses below, are hosted by the Singapore Rugby Union, in conjunction with World Rugby.
