3.) CPR

 

CPR training must be taken as a ‘live’ course; online certification cannot be accepted.  OhioHealth provides CPR training free for Gahanna-Jefferson coaches.  Visit www.ohiohealth.com/sports-medicine-classes for location, date and registration information.  You may take a live CPR training course elsewhere at your own expense as long as the provider is qualified to issue a “Certificate of Completion” and/or CPR card.

 

Frequency:  This training must be done once every two years.

This course is online through the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).  The cost is $65.

This free course is online through the NFHS or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

6.) Sudden Cardiac Arrest

 

This free course is online through the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) using the Learning Management System (LMS), which can be accessed through individual SAFE accounts.  On the LMS homepage at top right, select the Course Catalog.   Search for “sudden cardiac arrest” to find the course.

 

Frequency:  This training must be done once every year.

 

7.) Pupil Activity Course

 

In order to apply for a Pupil Activity Permit (PAP), you must first take part in an ODE-approved or nationally-approved pupil activity program (unless you hold a current medical license; please notify the Office of Human Resources and provide a copy of your credentials).

OhioHealth provides ‘live’ pupil activity training free for Gahanna-Jefferson coaches.  Visit www.ohiohealth.com/sports-medicine-classes for location, date and registration information.  You may take a live training course elsewhere at your own expense as long as it is an ODE-approved program (visit ODE’s website for more details).   If you prefer to take an online course, a nationally-approved program, First Aid, Health and Safety for Coaches, is available through NFHS.  The cost is $45.

 

Frequency:  This training must be completed each time you renew your PAP (once every three to five years, depending upon the length of your permit).

 

8.) Pupil Activity Permit

 

*Applying for a Pupil Activity Permit should be the final step after all of the other listed requirements have been fulfilled and submitted to the Office of Human Resources.*

Applications must be completed online through ODE’s website using a SAFE account.   For the application process, you will need to reference our District’s IRN #046961.   The cost is $45 for a 3-year permit; to certain teachers who hold specific types of educator licenses, 4-year and 5-year permits are available at $60 and $75, respectively.

When you submit and pay for your application through ODE, it will automatically be forwarded to the Office of Human Resources for an electronic signature and verification of requirements.   Once verified, ODE will finalize and process your application, then email a copy of the permit directly to you as well as to the Office of Human Resources.

 

Frequency:  This permit must be renewed once every three to five years, depending upon if you hold an educator license.  For non-educators, the frequency is once every three years.

 

9.) Register on FinalForms

 

Once you are registered as a coach by the Athletic Department, you will receive a confirmation email for FinalForms.  FinalForms is used to hold student-athlete medical information, to track eligibility, and to monitor your certifications/requirements.  All coaches must be on FinalForms.
