About The Pre "B" Assessment Course
The Pre “B” course was designed with the Provincial “B” Licence course in mind. It is for those coaches who plan to attain a higher certification level at the Provincial or National level.
This course is four days in duration with a minimum of 7 hours per day. This is an assessment course but due to the length it also gives coaches a better than good idea of what to expect at the Provincial “B” Licence level.
After successfully completing this Pre “B” Course, a 1 year practical component will apply, i.e., a coach may apply to attend a Provincial B Course one year from their successful completion date. It is important that coaches have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in practice and it is through this practical application that coaches should be able to achieve an experienced comfort level so that when they attend the Provincial B Course it is within an environment that is familiar to them.
Throughout this course, coaches will be assessed. They will be given both verbal and written feedback. Verbal will be in the form of group and individual feedback and a final individual written assessment.
The final written results will either recommend the coach to attend a Provincial “B” Course or it will recommend that the Pre “B” Assessment Course be repeated.
