Did you know that beginning in 2015 all Athletic Trainers are required to obtain at least 10 Evidence-based Practice continuing education units every 2 years?

Jones & Bartlett Learning, in conjunction with the Korey Stringer Institute, has developed a first-of-its-kind, engaging scenario-based online course to help you meet these new requirements.

Throughout the course, users are met with realistic, evidence-based emergency video scenarios, scenarios that any Athletic Trainer may encounter in their career. In each scenario, learners are asked to make important observations and decisions that would impact the health and safety of the athlete in question.

Course Organization:

PRE-TEST: This self-test is comprised of 10-15 questions that measures the learners baseline knowledge of the material found within the course.

LEARN: There are seven (7) individual learning modules addressing how to recognize, prevent, react to such critical health topics as heat illness, brain injury, cardiac emergencies, asthma and more.

APPLY:  There are seven (7) skills drills modules  where the user can apply what they have learned and get feedback in a safe learning environment

VIDEO SCENARIOS:  These twelve (12) video scenarios depict the most common emergency scenarios Athletic Trainers may be confronted with in the field, and look to the learner to assess and appropriately respond to each situation utilizing a decision tree approach.  Just as an Athletic Trainer can’t predict what emergency may occur on any given day, users won’t  know which emergency they will be faced with until they open the video and the clock starts ticking.  Because in any emergency situation – time matters.

FINAL EXAM: This graded exam consists of 50 questions covering all learning modules. EBP CEUs are awarded for those who pass the exam.



  • Heat Illness (this covers heat stroke and heat exhaustion)
  • Brain Injury (includes hematoma)
  • Cardiac Emergency
  • Exertional Sickling  (includes Muscle cramping)
  • Emergency Action Plans
  • Asthma
  • Lightening

    Note: Participants completing the Preventing Sudden Death in Sports and Physical Activity course for EBP CEU credit after December 24th may not receive their CEU certificate until after January 1st. However, the BOC will accept EBP CEU certificates after January 1, 2018 for the 2016-2017 certification maintenance period as long as the course was completed prior to December 31, 2017.
