Course Outline

The aim of the Level 2 Sports Trainer program is to further develop the basic knowledge and skills of a Level 1 Sports Trainer that in turn will improve their ability to contribute to safer sporting events and organisations. It is anticipated that the experience gained since completion of the Level 1 course will provide course participants with sufficient insight to assimilate this higher level of knowledge into their role as a Sports Trainer. The minimum requirement for accreditation as a Level 2 Sports Trainer is the completion of all 9 course units.

The course covers the following units:

  • Role of the Level 2 Sports Trainer
  • Pre & Post Game Injury Prevention Programs
  • Concussion Management
  • Athlete Wellbeing and Mental Health
  • Sports Specific Massage
  • Advanced Taping
  • Wound Management
  • Triage and First Response
  • Course Review and Open Forum

Course Pre-Requisites

  • Current accreditation as an SMA Level 1 Sports Trainer
  • Current First Aid (HLTAID003) Certificate
  • Current CPR (HLTAID001) Certificate
  • Letter of industry experience detailing at least 50+ hours of work as a Sports Trainer


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

The course comprises a minimum of 19 hours of instruction. The course units may be delivered either over consecutive days or a longer period of time depending on the mode of delivery.


Students will be assessed as follows:

  • Demonstration, practice and assessment of practical skills
  • Multiple choice exam and written assessment

Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) may be granted for units that the participant has already achieved competency in on provision of suitable evidence of current competence in the unit area.  For example, a participant with a Degree or Certificate IV qualification in massage may be deemed competent in the “Introduction of Sports Massage” unit if the applicant’s academic transcript or other documentary evidence provides evidence of the achievement of competence in this area. Participants who have completed comparable units from the SIS30810 Certificate III Sports Trainer qualification from the SIS10 Sport, Fitness and Recreation Training Package may also be eligible for RPL. The determination of RPL for a particular unit or units remains at the discretion of Sports Medicine Australia.

Course Resources

Students are provided with the following course resources:
