Free Online Concussion Courses for Coaches

Jul 11, 2014 | Uncategorized

The Making Head Way eLearning Series are National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) Professional Development (PD) modules designed to help coaches gain the knowledge and skills required to ensure the safety of their athletes. 

Developed as part of the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Active and Safe initiative with the involvement of medical experts, these eLearning modules are designed to help coaches reduce the incidence of brain injuries in team sports and to improve decision-making about when it is safe to return to play after a head injury. 

Concussions can occur while participating in any sport or recreational activity. Since the circumstances under which a concussion can be sustained are so varied, it’s important for all coaches, parents, and athletes to be aware of the signs, symptoms, and what to do if a concussion occurs.

This 60-90 minute training course has been made available free of charge on the coach.ca website with more sport specific modules to be offered for free at a later date. 

Coaches across Ontario are encouraged to take the courses and make high school sport a safer and more enjoyable place for our student-athletes.
