Event description

Description

Learn to effectively plan and deliver ACL injury prevention workshops for young athletes and gain a competitive advantage as a certified HSS Sports Safety Educator (HSS-SSE).

HSS-SSE Certification Provides:

  • A broadened understanding of the importance of community-based ACL injury prevention interventions

  • New opportunities to help reduce the risk of ACL injury for young athletes in their schools and communities

  • The ability to immediately implement a cutting-edge, highly effective public health education program

  • Inclusion in an exclusive online directory of certified educators

  • Ongoing support from HSS Sports Safety program staff

HSS will host the HSS Sports Safety Educator (HSS-SSE) Certification Course to train sports medicine clinicians, specifically athletic trainers and physical therapists, on delivering NMT education programs to youth and high school athletes. Neuromuscular training (NMT) programs have been shown to significantly reduce the rate of ACL injury and improve sports performance in a variety of athlete populations.

Certification course includes live athlete workshop demonstration, small group breakout sessions, certification exam, and PT CEUs / BOC Category A CEUs. Please see detailed agenda below.
