Please Note All Costs Are As Quoted In Austalian Dollars ($AUS)
Over the last year there have been multiple requests from coaches seeking to acquire Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or wishing to upgrade their current accreditation / qualifications.
It is difficult to accommodate these requests during AFF tournaments as assessors are usually coaches who attend the competitions to assist their athletes. This is also often the case for the coaches wishing to be assessed.
It is proposed that the day (24/4/07) after the 2007 AFF # 1 National Tournament to be held in Adelaide be used as an assessment day. The venue will be Scotch College where the competition is being held. This could become a regular event each year, prior to one of the AFF tournaments, providing all coaches wishing to complete either the practical component (individual lessons) of the Level 2 courses or sit a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) an opportunity to do so. Coaches can also submit their Level 2 research assignments and course work as the cost will include the assessment of this component.
The practical component of the Level 2 course is one part of the competencies that coaches need to complete. All competencies need to be completed prior to receiving accreditation. For details of the competencies required, coaches can refer to the AFF Level 2 Coaching Courses.
The cost for the assessment of the coaches will be determined by the number of coaches wishing to be assessed. No more than 4 assessments can be carried out the day as each assessment requires 1.5 hours per weapon.
A deposit in advance of $110 will be required in order to be allocated one of the 4 places on the day.
The final cost (including deposit) will vary from $310 - $480 depending on the number of coaches being assessed. Coaches will be advised by 2/4/07 of the final cost. The fee covers the costs incurred by the assessors including airfare, accommodation, a fee for their time spent on the practical and written assessments. The fee will need to be paid to the AFF prior to the commencement of the assessment. If the assessment doesn’t occur for reasons of force majeure the deposit will be refunded.
