The foundational skills include basic assessment of fitness levels; first aid; and CPR. The foundational knowledge includes an ability to articulate methods of preventing sports injuries; to dramatize assessment and initial management of sports injuries in a classroom simulation; and to explain treatment modalities and the process of rehabilitation from a sports injury.
