AFL preferred provider
We have been accredited by the AFL to deliver the ERC course.
The AFL mandates this qualification as being the minimum competency required to officiate as a sports trainer at football games. At least one Emergency Response Coordinator must be present at each game, in addition to the team trainer.
The AFL endorses the training of Emergency Response Coordinators to support football associations, clubs, teams and volunteers to build their capacity to meet the minimum requirements of the Australian Football League Management of Injuries and Medical Emergencies in Community Australian Football Policy.
The ERC is particularly targeted at junior football clubs that may not have a Level 1 sports trainer able to attend games.
The course is well suited for someone who is considering becoming a level 1 sports trainer but currently cannot commit to two full days of training. After obtaining an ERC the qualification can be upgraded to Level 1 Sports Trainer.
