Australian Canoeing is currently preparing a new coach accreditation scheme, which applies to all canoe/kayak disciplines. Called the Coach Development Pathway (see above), there are four proficiency levels:
- Foundation coach;
- Development coach;
- Performance coach; and
- Podium coach.
Foundation is equivalent to the current level 1 training and Development to the current level 2. The Performance and Podium qualifications are new and focused on preparing our national coaches. Existing level 1 and 2 qualifications remain valid but the new levels will be phased in over the next year or two.
