Upcoming Sports Trainer Courses
ALL TEAMS from U6 - U17's require a qualified and current accredited COACH, LEAGUESAFE (water runner) AND SPORTS TRAINER ( FAO) FOR EVERY GAME - HOME AND AWAY GAME.
SPORTS TRAINER COURSES
As you would be aware a number of changes have occurred in the area of Sports Trainers accreditation in recent years. This is due to the need to be aligned with a formally recognised Training company. One of the benefits of this is that the game is now recognising First Aid qualifications that have been gained form other bodies. Also by completing the NRL Sports Trainers course it is industry recognised and allows participants to use this certificate for their work.
For those who have no qualifications – You must attend a sports trainer course and the Cost is $180 (Courses are listed above)
For those whom already have some qualifications- You can apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL). This is done by uploading relevant documents on thewww.playnrl.com website and having them assessed prior to course commencement.
For more information on how to apply for RPL please follow this link - http://www.playnrl.com/recognition-of-prior-learning-sports-trainer/
To re accredit…. If your sports trainer level 1 or level 2 is still current you can apply for reaccreditation online. To do this you must hold a current ‘provide first aid’ certificate and a current CPR certificate. To apply for reaccreditation online follow the link below. The cost for online reaccreditation is $75
Reaccreditation can also be gained by attending a face to face reaccreditation. You can register for this at www.playnrl.com . Cost $80
To renew your CPR qualification - attend an NRL CPR update. Register at www.playnrl.com.au or below at the course link . Cost $40
If you hold a current CPR qualification with an external provider it is strongly recommended to send the certificate to email@example.com as it is the responsibility of the individual to update this annually.
NB: All reaccreditation course participants will need to complete a reaccreditation course (either online or face to face) prior to their qualification expiring. If the qualification lapses, candidates will need to complete the entire course again.
Working With Children Check
All members who have face to face contact with children are required by law to apply for a Working with Children Check. To comply with the Office of the Children’s Guardian requirements all checks must be completed by March 31. Identification cards will not be issued to coaches, leaguesafe or sports trainers until their WWCC’s have been verified.
