Concussions in Sports: Ohio's Return-to-Play Law
Effective April 26, 2013, pursuant to Ohio Revised Code section 3319.303, any applicant for a new or renewal pupil activity permit is required to complete training specifically focused on recognizing the signs and symptoms of concussions and head injuries and brain injury management as a condition of obtaining a new or renewed permit.
There are two online-courses available free of charge regarding concussions in sports that will meet the requirements of the law. The courses may be completed online in about an hour or less. Individuals are required to complete one of these two course options.
A certificate of completion may be printed out upon successful completion of either training. An applicant should submit a copy of the certificate with the pupil activity permit application.
