What is a Face to Face (F2F) course?

"Face to Face", also known as "F2F", courses are held at a venue and are commonly a mixture of presentation and practical delivery.

Online or eLearning courses are a common accreditation requirement which takes an individual through required learning material in an online format.

eLearning modules are often a prerequisite for a Face to Face component to complete an accreditation.  Make sure to check your course requirements.

How do I access my First Aid or CPR certificates completed as part of a Sports Trainer course?

You should have been emailed a copy of your certificate on completion of the course.  Check your emails (or spam folder), or log in to the course provider's Online Learning Centre where you completed your First Aid or CPR modules.


How do I upload copies of my annual certificates (e.g CPR) to my Profile?

If you have completed annual training with an external Recognised Training Organisation, you can request to upload your skill/s to your Profile by completing a simple form and attaching a copy of your Statement of Attainment.

Recognised training includes:

  • HLTAID001 or HLTAID009 (Provide CPR)
  • HLTAID003 or HLTAID011 (Provide First Aid)
  • HLTAID007 or HLITA010 (Provide Advanced Resuscitation)
  • PUAEME004 (Provide Emergency Care for a Suspected Spinal Injury)


I completed a Course but it's not listed in My Courses.  How do I find it?

If your course isn't available in your Completed Course list:

  • Check your Current enrolments - just in case part of the course is still to be completed.
  • Was it completed under a different Profile name?  Sometimes a course is completed under a different name to your approved Club Profile (e.g. one profile under "Tim", another under "Timothy").  If this is the case, you will need to contact Support to get your profiles merged.


I've completed my eLearning modules and attended the Face to Face, but my accreditation isn't "complete".  What's wrong?

  • Check your eLearning modules.  Do they all show a green tick?  If any show the orange "in progress" icon, then you'll need to finish them off before your accreditation will be complete.  Make sure to click on every part of the interactive components!
  • Sports Trainers (courses involving additional modules such as CPR or First Aid) - have you completed your eLearning for the CPR/First Aid component?  You should have received an email with instructions on how to log in and complete the relevant modules, which are separate from your NRL Learning Centre modules.  These MUST be completed to finalise your accreditation.
  • Presenter may be checking your course material, so it may take a couple of days for your Face to Face to be marked off as completed.
  • None of the above?  Get in contact with our Support Team.


Can I apply for Recognition of Prior Learning? (RPL)

You can apply for RPL for some components of a Sports Trainer accreditation.  For more information, visit our dedicated Trainer page.
