Developed jointly with the National Federation of State High School Associations, First Aid, Health and Safety for Coaches is designed to give students an overview of first aid and "best practices" for many first aid situations encountered by coaches. Students will learn skills directly related to athletic injuries that may also be useful for injuries to officials, fellow coaches and/or spectators.
Blended Learning CPR/AED is a great complement to this course.
Topics in this course include:
- Checking an unconscious adult or athlete
- Management of asthma
- Recognition, prevention and management of heat-related illnesses
- Recognition and management of injuries to the head, neck and spine
- Psychological and mental health problems, skin conditions and infections
