Looking for Coaches Course Can't Post

I'm trying to find a couches course coming up in the next few months, preferably out on the east coast or nearby.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

May I ask your motivation for attending and is your profile correct?

Updated my profile.

The coach rating is the first instructional rating, and I believe there is no better way to learn than by teaching others.

is three years and 150 jumps not enough in your opinion to be a coach? I ask because I have three years and probably will have 200 jumps when I go try to get my coach rating...

Since you asked for My Opinion, I will give it, you may like it or not.

No, I do not think 150 is enough actual jumping experience for a Coach, 200 (What you say you will have) is far better, IMO.

The Time in Sport is key too, three years is good, two minimum again, IMO.

I ran Coach Courses set to the USPA Standards, folks met the Standards and passed or did not meet them and did not pass. Some with 100 jumps did well, others with 100 jumps not so well. Those with more than 100 jumps had the same split as those with out.

Now there is no certification for a "Couch Course" AFAIK, but I think I am a master at it!
