Sports Medicine Australia is thrilled to announce the return of face to face education, with the initial introduction of the Level 1 Sports Trainer to our national calendar over the coming weeks!

SMA is doing our upmost to take a socially responsible stance to our course recommencement, with several measures in place to ensure the learning environment is one that is safe for both presenters and students. These include:

  • Minimising face to face education delivery
  • Introducing online classrooms to our Level 1 Sports Trainer Program
  • Developing a COVID-19 online module which will complement the Level 1 Sports Trainer course
  • Ensuring strict hygiene and cleaning procedures pre, during and post face to face courses
  • Introducing the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at all face to face course delivery
  • Minimising maximum student attendance at all face to face course delivery

With this in mind, spaces will be limited to our initial course offerings in September/October, however we will be increasing this volume over the coming months. So, there will certainly be the opportunity to complete your accreditation soon enough if you are not successful with enrolment on this occasion!

With changes to the amount of face to face delivery, the delivery modes of the Level 1 Sports Trainer have now changed. The course will now be made up of the following:

  1. Pre Course online learning (Level 1 Sports Trainer and COVID-19 module) 6-8 hours
  2. 2 x Online classrooms (Delivered via Zoom) 2.5 hours each
  3. Face to face practical assessment 3 hours
  4. Final Assessment (Online post course) 15-30 mins
