RNZ Coach Education Levels
The RNZ Coach Education Modules are run in Auckland during weekend 1 day or 2 day workshops
Please check the dates tab for the 2015 courses. We attempt to keep these weekends consistent year to year to aid in your own planning. Much that same way as regattas are generally run on the same weekend each year too.
Each year at the time of the ARA Regatta Meeting the time table for the following 12 months will be sent out to clubs and schools
The main window for the running of these courses will be between May – November each year, keeping these courses away from the busiest times of the domestic rowing year.
This programme is a points based system of modules that add up to an overall qualification, much like a degree is made up of core papers and elective papers.
