Human Kinetics and Sport Safety International (SSI), leading providers of coach education to scholastic coaches, have partnered to offer online training and certification in recognizing and treating concussion, heat illness, and sudden cardiac arrest.

The joint mission of the partnership is to promote injury prevention and safe participation in physical activity and sports by providing the highest quality educational programming to coaches, athletes, parents, and sports medicine professionals.
