Your Certification Could Save Lives
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a new online certification course to help coaches, athletes, parents and trainers understand and recognize the dangers of concussions in athletes.
The online certification is free and you do receive a certificate of completion upon successful passing of the course. The main items that you will learn in this course are:
- Understand a concussion and the potential consequences of this injury,
- Recognize concussion signs and symptoms and how to respond,
- Learn about steps for returning to activity (play and school) after a concussion, and
- Focus on prevention and preparedness to help keep athletes safe season-to-season.
