Course Outline

Sports Trainer accreditation is valid for 3 years and should be updated before the expiry date. The SMA re-accreditation procedure involves demonstrating that you are competent and provides the opportunity to update you skills and knowledge with the latest techniques and information.

Course Pre-Requisites

To attend the re-accreditation course, participants must have a Level 2 Sports Trainer accreditation in addition to:

  • Current First Aid (HLTAID003) Certificate
  • Current CPR (HLTAID001) Certificate
  • Current Provide Emergency Care for Suspected Spinal Injuries (PUAEME004A) Certificate


Upon completion of this training, students will receive a Statement of Course Attendance.


To enrol, students must be a minimum of 16 years of age. Children under 16 may be accepted on a case-by-case basis upon application to their local SMA state branch (in the state where the course is to be held). This ensures the student has the necessary skills to undertake training and assessment requirements.

Delivery Mode/Duration

Designed for those people who are time poor, Sports Medicine Australia now offers two methods for re-accreditation so you can choose the options that suites you.

OPTION 1 – Internal Accreditation

This option allows sports trainers to attend a re-accreditation course in 1/2 a day.

OPTION 2 – External Accreditation

This option allows sports trainers to re-accredit external to a course by being assessed on a set of competencies by an approved health care professional.

On successful completion of the course, the Sports Trainer will receive a three year National accreditation and identification card.


Students will be assessed as follows:

  • Presenter observation and practical assessment

Course Resources

Students are provided with the following course resources:

  • Sports tape (as required) & associated materials
