Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it is very hands on. It differs from other health courses in the sense that you are not just sitting there learning about the body and different injuries, but actually working with your classmates to learn tangibly. This definitely helps to learn more efficiently and commit the material to memory.
The take away from this class was great! For this class the year is split up into different sections that correspond with different body parts that are the most common for sports related injuries. These include the ankle(most in depth), knee, hip, shoulder, and wrist. For each body part you will learn most/all of the bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and how to palpate them, as well as the special test for different injuries. Next you will take two oral practicals. One for an actual injury, or multiple injuries, and then one for the taping of those injuries. This is process is repeated for each section, and take up almost the whole year. In spare time you will go over a few other things such as nutrition, nutrition supplements, and rehab processes.

Advice for students:
Although the course has a lot of information it is extremely doable. Ms. Corder will provide you with the exact tools, and information necessary to succeed. On top of that you will do lots of in class reviews, review games, mock oral practicals, and practice taping in class. If you pay attention in class and use your time wisely, this class only requires minimal study time.
