The Emergency Response Coordinator (ERC) course has been developed on behalf of the AFL following a review of its standards for first aid and emergency care across all levels of Australian Football. The ERC is proposed as a mandatory requirement starting in 2013 for all community football clubs including AusKick and addresses the fundamentals of injury management for sport.
The ERC course is a 3 hour course which covers the following topics:
- Role of the Emergency Response Coordinator
- Emergency Planning
- Emergency Response
- On Field Assessment
- Concussion Management
- On Field Communication
- Transporting Injured participants
The ERC can be run at your club or association venue.

$450 for up to 10 participants
Plus $25 per person over and above the 10 participants
*Please note courses held outside of the Metropolitan area may include a travel cost depending on the distance course presenter will be required to travel to venue.
