Sports First Aid and Injury Prevention was developed to help coaches, athletic trainers, athletes and parents of athletes manage the common emergencies they will likely encounter while participating in sports. The course includes coverage of the phases of injury and the injury prevention model, prevention tips for sports-related injuries common to specific sports (such as sprains and concussions), and appropriate treatment for common injuries and illnesses. The following topics will be covered during the training: Assessment, Bleeding Control, Shock Management, Assessment Illness, and Assessment Injury. Students will practice simulated injuries to gain competency in skills. This course meets the New York state coaching requirements for first aid. Successful completion of this course will result in a certification card from the Emergency Care & Safety Institute, a nationally recognized organization. This course will NOT result in a CPR AED certification card, but can be taken in conjunction with our American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR AED certification course. Preregistration and payment are required.
