College/University Course Adoption

Courses available for adoption by colleges and universities include Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid, advanced sport-specific technical and tactical skills courses, and Officiating Principles

Classroom courses

Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid classroom courses are taught by certified instructors. No additional training is necessary for higher education instructors to become certified. For each course, instructors are provided ancillaries (online instructor guide and video clips) for conducting the course. Students receive the respective textbook (in print book or ebook format) and take the course test online.

Online courses

Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid are also offered as online courses. Advanced sport-specific courses and Officiating Principles are only offered as online courses. All of our online courses include a textbook (print or ebook; varies by course). In addition to reading assignments, the online courses feature video clips, interactive exercises, audio clips, quizzes, and other activities that put the student in real-life practice and game-day situations. Students take the course test online and receive immediate results.

As an online course adopter, you have the option of having your students buy their course materials directly from us through the Colleges and Universities portal page or having your bookstore purchase online course packages in quantity to sell through the bookstore.

Additional Benefits of Course Adoption

Testing services

Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid online tests are scored electronically; students receive immediate feedback on test results. Students who pass are entered in the National Coaches Registry found on the Human Kinetics Coach Education Center website.

Record keeping through the National Coaches Registry

Students who take our courses are entered in this online registry (unless they elect to opt out). Each student's record contains information on courses taken, test scores, course completion dates, and certifications earned. Students have access to their personal NCR entries and can print and email their course transcripts directly from this area of the site. As an instructor, you have access to your students' records through the NCR. With just a few clicks, you can pull up a roster of students and quickly see who has taken and passed your courses and when. The NCR automates your record keeping for you.
