Concussion Course Instructions-
HERE ARE THE DIRECTIONS FOR COACHES TO ACCESS THE ON-LINE “CONCUSSION IN SPORTS” COURSE:
Go to this direct link – http://nfhslearn.com/ – to access the course.
Coaches who have never registered: Select “REGISTER” and complete the registration process. After entering your personal information (name, address, etc.) you will be directed to an “Additional Information” page. You MUST SELECT ‘Coach’ as one of your primary positions, you MUST SELECT ‘Iowa’ as your state and MUST ENTER YOUR BoEE FOLDER NUMBER UNDER THE HEADING ‘State Assigned ID Number’!! IF YOU DO NOT ENTER ‘Iowa’ AS YOUR STATE AND DO NOT ENTER YOUR BoEE FOLDER NUMBER, YOU WILL NOT GET CREDIT FOR VIEWING THE COURSE! If you do not know your BoEE folder number you can use this Iowa Board of Educational Examiners link – https://www.iowaonline.state.ia.us/boee/ to search for it.
Coaches who have already registered: Will need to “Sign In” (passwords are case sensitive). If the site does not recognize your password you will need to select “Forgot my password”. When you do this you will be asked to verify your e-mail address and will then receive an e-mail with a link that will allow you to reset your password and sign back into your account. The IHSAA does not have access to your password. Once signed in select “My Account”. You need to select “COURSES” from the top menu. The easiest way to access the “Concussion in Sports” course may be to begin typing ‘concussion’ in the “Search for Courses” box. When the “Concussion in Sports” logo appears, move the cursor over it and click, “View Course”. When the next page appears, select “Iowa” as your State and click “Order Course”.
1. Complete the ordering process by selecting:
a. “I am ordering a course for myself”,
b. Make sure that “Iowa” is listed as the State,
d. “I agree to the NFHS No Refund Policy for online education courses, except for inadvertent duplicate purchases.”,
2. When the ‘Order Receipt’ appears, click on “DASHBOARD” in the top menu, then click on “Begin Course”.
3. At the end of the course, there is a course evaluation form to complete before you can select “Download Certificate” so you can print your certificate of completion to keep for your records.
THE NFHS REQUIRES EACH COACH TO REGISTER FOR THE CONCUSSION COURSE AND VIEW IT INDIVIDUALLY. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO SHOW THE COURSE IN A MASS SETTING, SUCH AS A COACHES’ MEETING. THE PRIMARY REASON FOR THIS IS THAT THE NFHS NEEDS TO CAPTURE INFORMATION ON INDIVIDUAL COACHES TO ENTICE SPONSORS TO FUND THIS COURSE AND OTHER NFHS EDUCATION INITIATIVES.
If you have any questions about accessing the online course please don’t hesitate to contact Chelsea Clark (email@example.com) or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have any questions about the requirement for completing the course don’t hesitate to contact us.
