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.

The courses available through the partnership are ConcussionWise, HeatWise, and CardiacWise. Each course is specifically crafted to assist coaches in the prevention and management of the conditions they address. ConcussionWise is designed and updated to be in accordance with state requirements.

The three courses complement Human Kinetics’ current courses for scholastic coaches, Coaching Principles, Sport First Aid, and Coaching Orientation, which are accredited through the National Council of Coaching Education (NCACE).

"We are very excited to partner with Human Kinetics, a proven leader in coaching education," said Dr. Robb Rehberg, President and co-founder of Sport Safety International. "Combining our sport safety education programming with HK's industry-leading coaching education offerings will expose a greater number of coaches to this important information. Ultimately, this collaborative effort, will help further our mission to promote safe participation in sport and physical activity through education."

“Human Kinetics is very pleased to collaborate with Sport Safety International to broaden our coach education curriculum to include three health and safety courses that more and more sport organizations and interscholastic athletic governing bodies are requiring of coaches,” said Ted Miller, Vice President and Coach Education Director at Human Kinetics. “The addition of SSI’s high-quality, research-based courses to Human Kinetics’ coach education offerings will provide a one-stop shopping experience for sport administrators and coaches, so that they may better serve their athletes.”
