NFHS Learn - Concussion, Heat Illness and other safety courses
NFHS is an organization for coaches and Athlete Safety. All coaches are required to complete this online concussion training program by California State Law every 2 years. It is a free online course that takes about 30min.
Anyone can sign up and take any of these courses. You do not need to be a coach to sign up to participate. I would recommend all athletes and parents to take the concussion course and understand the seriousness of concussions and the signs and symptoms of one.
