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.

Please note there are minimum numbers required for courses to be presented:

  • Sports Trainer Course - minimum of 8 people, maximum of 16
  • Additional Education Courses (e.g. Nutrition, Medication & Drugs in Sport, Concussion, Hamstring/Shoulder/Ankle/Knee/Groin injuries) - minimum of 6 people, maximum topic & venue dependant


If you are part of the Northern Football Netball League (NFNL) please note that all sessions for the 2019 season have now been completed. Dates for the 2020 season are yet to be confirmed.


In 2019 we presented the following sessions for the Northern Football Netball League:


Sports Trainers Course (NFNL & AFL Accredited)

  • Pre-requisite: Current First Aid and CPR certificates*
  • NFNL requirement for all senior club/team trainers
  • 8hr course

  • Min 8 - Max 16 participants
  • BYO lunch. Morning & Afternoon Tea provided 


Additional Education Sessions (for NFNL Accredited Sports Trainers)

The following qualify as PD requirements for ongoing Sports Trainer (AFL) accreditation. Pre-requisite: A current Sports Trainers certificate.


  • Expand on your knee injury management 
  • 2 hour course. Lecture + practical (taping). FREE 


  • Expand on your shoulder injury management 
  • 2 hour course. Lecture + practical (taping). FREE 


Wondering if our courses are any good? Here's a snapshot of what 2019 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 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.
