This course is specifically for sports medicine personnel including, but not limited to, sports physical therapists and certified athletic trainers who respond to acute injuries and illness in the sports venue or in the clinic that have been previously certified in Emergency Medical Response and do not regularly provide venue coverage or practice acute care in a venue setting.

Renewal of the American Red Cross (ARC) EMR certification is an option if the participant abides by all the ARC recertification rules, including that you must possess a current Emergency Medical Response Certification (valid within 90 days of the course start date).
