Changes To JNZ Coaching Qualification Requirements

(2021-07-22 09:25:42)
Changes since the JNZ Coaching Qualification framework was introduced in 2012 have resulted in the decision to remove the Technical Skills and Kata Training Seminars as requirements for completion of the Level 1 and Level 2 Coaching Qualifications.
The grading standards for the technical components have been available in the JNZ Members area of the website for a number of years, and these supersede the requirement for them to be demonstrated to club coaches as a component for coaching qualifications.
Areas and clubs may continue to organise technical development programs as and if required.
The updated requirements are attached.
