Level 2 Sports Trainer

Course Outline

The NRL Level 2 Sports Trainer course is targeted primarily towards trainers working under the Performance On-Field Policy. 

The aim of the Level 2 Sports Trainer program is to further develop the basic knowledge and skills of a Level 1 Sports Trainer that in turn, will improve their ability to contribute to safer sporting events and organisations.
