Wondering if our courses are of value? Here's a snapshot of what 2019 attendees thought.



Sports Trainer re-accreditation courses (for NFNL Accredited Trainers) are no longer be 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.
