In support of Brevard Public Schools, the Office of Professional Learning and Development offers to community athletic coaches and teachers a three-course program approved by the Florida Department of Education to enable successful completers to add Athletic Coaching to their certificates or to obtain a Florida certificate in Athletic Coaching. The current approval period is July 2020 - June 2025. Michael Alba and his staff manage the program and offer all three required face to face courses to our employees annually at no charge. Athletic Coaching Theory, Sports Medicine (including submission of a valid CPR card and First Aid training), and Sports Specific Training are the three 60-credit inservice courses offered each year. Upon successful completion of the courses, participants can apply for a five-year renewable certificate in Atheltic Coaching.  We want to continue offering this professional development program to teachers and community coaches. Having reviewed current state requirements for submission, we are requesting renewal of the program for the period July 2020 - June 2025. The program, including Professional Learning Catalog Components, is attached.

Approve submission of  the Brevard County Athletic Coaching Endorsement Program to the Florida Department of Education for their review and approval.
