SOFTE Workshop (Sports on the Field Trauma Emergencies)

The goal of this Certified Training Program is to equip all involved in sport with theoretical knowledge and the practical skills necessary to deal immediately and effectively with any injury in the sports field because we believe that the intervention of trained personnel in both amateur and professional sports is every athlete’s right. The instructors in SOFTE courses are Doctors, Paramedics and Physiotherapists all very successful in their field, highly trained and with great teaching experience.

The certification of the European College of Sports and Exercise Physicians - ECOSEP, which is recognized in all European countries, is awarded to all participants who successfully completed the course and is valid for 3 years.
