University of Wisconsin - Platteville Office of Continuing Education

Welcome students!

Human Kinetics Coach Education is proud to partner with the UW-Platteville Office of Continuing Education to offer our Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid online courses to teachers and coaches for continuing education units (CEUs) and undergraduate credits.

This option is especially valuable to elementary, middle school, and high school faculty-coaches who are required to earn continuing education credit to maintain their teaching certificate (and to earn a raise). From the comfort of your own home, you have the ability to earn continuing education credit by taking a course in which you have genuine interest: coaching! Each year, more than 20,000 high school, club sport, and Olympic coaches take Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid courses to further their professional development and meet certification requirements.

Thanks to our partner UW-Platteville Office of Continuing Education for making this option available to teachers and coaches.
