EVALUATION & CERTIFICATION
After completing all the training and co--coaching requirements, a new coach can apply to be evaluated.
With the application, the coach must have completed the MED on-line evaluation and present a sample practice paln that includes the Emergency Action Plan for that session.
The final (primary) evaluation process is the observation of the practice session that had been planned and set-up by the coach.
A certified Coach Evaluator, using a formal set of guidelines, will acknowledge that all the requirements have been met.
