Recognition of Coaching Competence

Tennis Canada, in partnership with the Coaching Association of Canada, has a Competency Based Education Coaching Certification System. As such, it respects and recognizes your current teaching and coaching competence which includes foreign coaches with ITF approved certification and Canadian coaches with significant coaching experience. Tennis Canada also recognizes coaching competence with respect to the playing background of former professional players.

Acceleration:

Upon successful completion of the Course that the person has been accelerated to, the individual will then receive his certification.
