CDC Concussion Training

USJA’s liability insurance company is asking every instructor, assistant instructor, indeed all persons who assume some oversight or trai ning responsibility (eg. Black belts) should take the U.S. Center for Disease Control’s free on line COACHES training at http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/.
The on line course takes between 30 and 45 minutes to complete followed by a short quiz. When you finish the training you will be able to complete an easy test and after successful completion, download and print a Certificate of Completion. Please send a copy of that certificate to the national office by fax or email (you can also send a copy through the post office).
I have asked Mike Szrejter and Ed Thibedou of the Coach Education to take immediate steps to include the CDC Heads up training in all future Level 1 training classes in order to comply with this very serious issue.
