NCAS courses

RA is responsible for the development of the National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS) syllabus and the supporting presentation materials, which are delivered by the state rowing associations. In addition to providing the materials for these courses, RA conducts assessor and presenter workshops to accredit individuals to present and assess the NCAS.

Individuals should register their interest with their state rowing association in order to be considered for inclusion in these workshops.
