Sports First Aid

This eight-hour workshop serves as an introduction to injury prevention and on-site management of sports related injuries. Topics covered include recognition and control of potentially hazardous situations, injury assessment and the handling of life-threatening situations, management of common injuries, referral patterns and the development of a sports first-aid kit. A certificate of completion is issued.

*A certificate of completion will be issued. This course is approved for 3.0 NCCP PD Continuing Education Credits*

Sport-Specific Option

A sport-specific course can be requested by any organization wishing to offer Sports First Aid training to its members. The sport specific approach not only makes the course more interesting, it ensures the participant has a good understanding of the risks associated with his/her sport and can implement specific injury prevention strategies. Sport-specific courses are available for soccer, football and lacrosse and have also been developed for fitness leaders. Course registration fees vary, depending on the size of the group.
