Sport First Aid, Fifth Edition
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long can I continue to teach the current Sport First Aid course?
A: You may continue to teach the current edition of Sport First Aid for as long as there are course packages available. If you have an inventory of current course packages, feel free to use them for upcoming clinics. You may order current course packages through September 16. Beginning October 1, 2013, you will only be able to purchase the new edition.
To allow for the transition to the new edition, no Sport First Aid courses (classroom or online, fourth or fifth edition) will be available for sale September 17 through September 30, 2013.
Q: What do I do with course packages I currently have on hand?
A: If you have an inventory of current course packages, you may use them for upcoming clinics; ASEP will continue to accept and score course tests indefinitely. However, if you’d prefer to switch to the new edition right away, you may return any unopened course packages for a credit toward your next purchase of new course packages.
Q: What do I do with my old textbook, instructor guide, and DVD?
A: Once you have received your new instructor materials, you may discard the old instructor materials. They are not to be returned to ASEP.
Q: Will I need to recertify to teach the new edition of Sport First Aid?
A: No, active Sport First Aid instructors do not need to recertify to teach the new version. However, we do encourage you to view a recorded instructor training webinar detailing the new course materials, content, and procedures. Here's a link to the recording.
Q: How will new instructors become certified moving forward?
A: New Sport First Aid instructors will need to complete the Sport First Aid course and pass the test at 90 percent or better and participate in instructor training. Contact Russell Wambles at RussellW@hkusa.com or 800-747-5698, ext. 7653 for more information.
Q: How do I obtain my new Sport First Aid instructor materials?
A: You can access electronic copies of the instructor guide and workbook upon request of your sales representative. Hard-copy instructor materials (including a print copy of Sport First Aid, Fifth Edition, instructor guide 3-ring binder, Sport First Aid Workbook, classroom DVD, and test packet) will be shipped to you with your first order of classroom course packages.
Q: I’m interested in offering the e-book version of Sport First Aid to my coaches. How does that work?
A: With Sport First Aid Classroom Course with e-book, the Sport First Aid text is delivered as an e-book, which is accessed through the Sport First Aid Online Component (classroom course participants receive a key code in their course packages providing access to this online resource). You order e-book classroom course packages in bulk just like you’ve always done. Instructions for accessing the e-book are included in the classroom course packages that you'll provide to your coaches at your clinic. The Sport First Aid e-book is delivered through Adobe Digital Editions (available as a free download). After gaining access to the online component, coaches download the e-book using ADE to a home computer or laptop. From there the e-book can be transferred to a hand-held device.
