The course is based on Sport First Aid, Fifth Edition, and covers protocols for conducting emergency action steps and providing life support; conducting a physical assessment; administering first aid for bleeding, tissue damage, and unstable injuries; moving an injured athlete; and returning athletes to play.

The fifth edition also provides guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the Heimlich maneuver, and automated external defibrillators (AED). It offers information on treating concussions and heat-related illnesses as well as preventing and recognizing methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus infections (MRSA). Strategies for greatly reducing athletes’ risk of injury or illness are also featured.

After completing the course units, you’ll take the 75-question Sport First Aid test online.
