Maintaining your Coaching License
The NSRA operates an instructor and coaches licencing scheme which requires coaches and instructors to maintain certain other standards while ever they are a NSRA coach or instructor. This is done to give a degree of quality assurance to people who seek help from them and part of the checks and balances required by our insurers to maintain standards of coaches and instructors.
Once you have qualified to keep your NSRA Club Instructor or any of the NSRA Coaching licenses valid you must have in place:
Membership – you must be a full member of the association – i.e. a life or annual member of the NSRA. This must be maintained throughout the 5 years of your license not just at renewal or grant of the license. If you are not a member then you are not ensured for your coaching activities.
CRB – you must have completed a NSRA CRB check. External CRB checks done by other organisations are not valid. A further check is required at each renewal of your license and is included in the cost.
If any of these are not fulfilled then your license is not valid and you are not considered a coach or instructor.
This will affect your insurance.
When it comes to the renewal of your license we require a brief outline of the activities you have undertaken during the period of the license countersigned by someone who can verify it. This is done to ensure that when a coach or instructor is renewed they have been active for the period of the license.
