The National Committee for Accreditation of Coaching Education (NCACE) encourages continuous improvement in the professional knowledge and competence of sport coaches by accrediting quality coaching education and coaching development programs. The NCACE review provides the process for the assessment of the adequacy of educational programs to meet the minimum requirements for formal education and practical experience as prescribed in the Guidelines for Accreditation of Coaching Education.  This session will focus on a brief overview of NCACE, how organizations can seek accreditation for their coaching education program with NCACE, and how to become a folio reader for NCACE.  Additionally, time will be made available for individuals to ask questions about the accreditation process, how to prepare materials, and how accreditation folios are reviewed.
