Mr Paramedic now conducts AFL-focused Sports Trainer courses. These courses are endorsed by the AFL, and are designed for people working at a community AFL club as a sports trainer.
The Mr Paramedic Sports Trainer course runs for one full day, making it achievable for volunteers to participate and obtain their AFL accreditation as a Sports Trainer. If you do not have a current First Aid certificate, we can run a course prior to the scheduled AFL Sports Trainer course. Day one would be first aid course and CPR and Day two would be the Mr Paramedic AFL Sports Trainer course. Both of these courses are valid for three years.
We can run this course for your club or league. We require a minimum of eight participants to run this AFL focused Sports Trainer course.
Course topics include, but are not limited to -
This course is the minimum requirement to be an AFL Sports Trainer, and covers all the Emergency Response Coordinator (ERC) course topics.

The Kinesiology Taping course is an advanced taping course teaching the techniques of kinesio tape. Kinesio taping can be used during sport as a preventative to injury, and post sport as a recovery tool. It lifts the skin and allows blood flow around the affected area, and in some aspects is a preferred option over rigid tape.
Participants who successfully complete this training will have the competencies and confidence required to apply kinesio tape as a preventative.
Course instructors are experienced Paramedics and Exercise Physiologists.
Mr Paramedic’s Introduction to Sports Taping course provides the minimum skill set and knowledge of taping sports participants. It aims to educate on the practical application of taping, whilst understanding the main purpose of sports taping. The course is ideal for coaches, trainers, parents and first aid officials. Participants who successfully complete this training have the minimum competencies required for game day sports taping.
