Since more than 60 percent of sport injuries occur during practice, coaches need to know how to respond to injuries and provide appropriate first aid. The Gym.Net / Red Cross Sport First Aid and CPR Course was created to teach school and club sport coaches how to be safe, capable, and effective first responders to injured athletes. During this course, coaches learn to develop a plan for emergency procedures, reduce the number of avoidable injuries, recognize serious and minor injuries; provide proper, immediate care for common sports injuries, and respond to life-threatening emergencies. Our purpose is to train individuals to overcome any reluctance to act in emergency situations and to recognize and care for life-threatening respiratory or cardiac emergencies in adults. There are no pre-requisites but many options and components to choose from:

Adult and Child CPR/AED Training
The new Adult and Child CPR/AED course combines instruction in Adult and Child CPR with the use of an automated external defibrillator. These are the two skills needed to save the life of a sudden cardiac arrest victim. Adult and Child CPR/AED Training is a 4.5 hour course designed for the lay rescuer in the Workplace.

The American Red Cross Workplace Training Program provides the latest in lifesaving and safety instruction. Build the program that works for your business using our modular curriculum. Choose one of our core courses, Standard First Aid or Adult and Child CPR/Automated External Defibrillation (AED). Then add a supplemental module such as Ergonomics, Blood Borne Pathogens or Slips, Trips, and Falls. 

Standard First Aid
Our American Red Cross Standard First Aid training complements adult learning styles with hands-on practice and real-life scenarios. Our take-away materials help employees to retain skills and serve as reference tools in an emergency. This comprehensive course meets training guidelines established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Topics covered include:

  • How to determine the safe response to an emergency situation
  • Recognizing and caring for life-threatening emergencies in adults, such as respiratory and cardiac problems and choking
  • Treating injuries including severe cuts and burns, sprains and strains
  • Treating sudden illnesses such as poisonings, bites, and stings
  • Recognizing and treating heat and cold emergencies, such as heat stroke and hypothermia
  • Automated External Defibrillation (AED) information
  • Workplace emergency planning
Ergonomics simply means improving the fit between your body and an activity. The result is increased comfort and efficiency. Musculoskeletal disorders, known as MSDs, are injuries often associated with repetitive strain or damage to muscles, tendons, nerves, and joints. By applying ergonomic principles, you may reduce your risk for MSDs and make any task less taxing on your body.

This one-hour module will help you to:

  • Understand and apply ergonomic principles
  • Identify and reduce your risk for MSDs
  • Perform exercises to help reduce the risk of MSDs
Blood Borne Pathogens
This one-hour module will help you to understand how to protect yourself against:
  • Hepatitis
  • HIV
  • AIDS
Slips, Trips, and Falls
Slips, trips, and falls are among the leading causes of injuries in the workplace. They affect people from all occupations because anyone can be at risk for three reasons: lack of safety awareness, unsafe conditions, and unsafe behaviors. This one-hour module will help you to:
  • Understand how safety awareness can reduce your risk of slips, trips, or falls
  • Identify, report, and correct unsafe conditions and behaviors
  • Learn tips for good balance
  • Develop a prevention plan
