ASMC Sports Trainer Courses Flyer - NFNL 2019


Wondering if our courses are any good? Here's a snapshot of what 2018 attendees thought.



Sports Trainer re-accreditation (for AFL Accredited Trainers) will no longer be required. Instead trainers are required to have a current CPR qualification and provide the AFL with records of hours worked (with club / organisation) along with ongoing education / continued professional development.

As such, we will no longer be offering Level 1 Sports Trainer Re-accreditation or Level 2 Sports Trainer course.

Trainers with SMA accreditation will need to contact SMA directly for further courses.


* If you do not bring proof of or have not yet completed these pre-requisites you can still attend the Sports Trainer course, but we cannot issue your certificate until these have been cited.
