Through their learning portal NFHS Learn they provide over 70 online courses with the majority of them being free. There are courses for; coaches, administrators, officials, students, and parents with a number of courses also about non athletic or activity topics such as Homework Help and Understanding Vaping and E-Cigarettes.
Since 2015 it has been mandatory for AIS coaches to complete the Concussion in Sport course each year but this year we have raised the expectation to include; Fundamentals of Coaching, Protecting Students from Abuse and Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
This year the NFHS has started a school ‘Honor Roll’ program where schools are honored when they have at least 90% of coaches complete these 4 courses. With their commitment to professional development for our coaches, this week AIS Vienna became the first international school in the world to be given this recognition.
