AMMAN — Lifesaving training has been held to ensure sports coaches can provide immediate treatment in the case of a serious injury on the sports field, the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service announced on Saturday.

The Qusai Initiative, set up by the Crown Prince Foundation to improve the safety and well-being of Jordan’s sports men and women, organised the session in cooperation with the Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC).

It taught the participants, many of whom were national team coaches, how to carry out Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, as well as other important first aids techniques. “The importance of this training course cannot be understated as it is giving coaches enough information on how to deal with emergencies in the right way as soon as they may happen,” said Zeid Habashneh, from Qusai Initiative.
