The aim of the Sports Medicine & Therapeutic Services Level II program is to further develop the basic knowledge and skills of a Sports Medicine & Therapeutic Services Level I that in turn will improve their ability to contribute to safer sporting events and organizations.  It is anticipated that the experience gained since completion of the Level I course will provide course participants with sufficient insight to assimilate this higher level of knowledge into their role as an Athletic Trainer.

As a consequence of completing the required course units it is expected the Sports Medicine & Therapeutic Services Level II will be able to apply appropriate first aid and emergency care of athletes at a more advanced standard than a Sports Medicine & Therapeutic Services Level I.
