We Train Trainers!


Are you part of a club, organisation or group that needs members to become qualified Sports Trainers? We can help!

We can offer Accredited Sports Trainer courses plus additional education courses for ongoing accreditation.

All courses are presented by qualified and experienced Physiotherapists or Sports Doctors.

Sports Trainer re-accreditation courses (for NFNL Accredited Trainers) are no longer required. Instead, after completing a Sports Trainers accreditation, attendance at at least one annual personal development session (facilitated by the NFNL) along with keeping their First Aid and CPR accreditation up to date will enable the individual to continue as a Sports Trainer in the NFNL.

As such, we no longer offer Level 1 Sports Trainer Re-accreditation or Level 2 Sports Trainer courses.

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 a Sports Trainer course, but we cannot issue your certificate until these have been cited.
