NCAS and NOAS
The National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS) and the National Officiating Accreditation Scheme (NOAS) are in place to support the education and development of coaches and officials.
The NCAS and NOAS provide competency based training and a nationally recognised accreditation to coaches and officials working at all levels of sport.
National sporting organisations (NSO) recognised by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) are eligible to be part of the schemes.
The NCAS and NOAS have changed over time since they were launched in 1978 and 1994 respectively and there are over 70 sports with NCAS and NOAS programs.
NSOs are responsible for the design and implementation of their coaching and officiating frameworks that incorporates the NCAS and NOAS for their sport.
The ASC has toolkits, guidelines and policies for NSOs to assist in the development of their NCAS and NOAS programs.
