Education

New approach

ISSF licenses for coaches have only been granted to those who have completed the so-called «educational-based path».It required studying course materials and completing exams at the ISSF Academy courses.

At the same time, actual coaching achievements were not taken into consideration. As a result, many great specialists who had prepared winners and medalists of the major competitions were not honored by the ISSF in any way.

The time has come to change it. The ISSF education system reform, which is currently underway, establishes three new categories: ISSF Coach Pro, ISSF Coach and ISSF National Coach. Same as before, each of those categories can still be obtained by completing the «educational-based path». However, now the ISSF Coach Pro and ISSF Coach licenses can also be obtained according to the achievements or the «outcome-based path».

So, the ISSF Coach Pro license can be awarded to a coach who has prepared an Olympic or World Championship medal winner in an Individual or a Mixed Team Olympic event starting with the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The ISSF Coach license can be awarded to a coach who has prepared an Olympic or World Championship finalist in an Individual or a Mixed Team Olympic event starting with the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The ISSF Coach Pro and ISSF Coach licenses obtained by completing the «outcome-based path» have no limits time.

The ISSF Coach Pro license will also be awarded to all coaches who currently posses an A license, and the ISSF Coach license will be awarded to all coaches who currently posses a B license. The ISSF National Coach license will be awarded to the acting coaches who currently posses a C license. However, the licenses obtained by completing the «educational-based path» will need to be renewed every four years.

All license holders will receive corresponding ISSF certificates and marks of distinction.

The ISSF Coach Pro and ISSF Coach licenses obtained by completing the outcome-based path are only awarded upon application from ISSF Member Federations.

National Federations with Continental Confederations organize both theoretical online lectures and practical lessons at sport venues in form of training camps (duration to be established). Theoretical lessons are taken online from ISSF website and can be supervised by Head Tutors.

For the ISSF Coach and ISSF Coach Pro the educational-based path involves both theoretical online lectures and practical lessons at sport venues in form of training camps
