The State Coaching Panel is seeking to help more coaches gain their
C Certificate examiners' ticket.
These Certificates are carried out at Club level and so Zone and State level
we are not aware of when these exams happen.
What we are aware of is that we have too few examiners for what is required to do.
To this end the requirements for being a C Examiner have been reviewed and now
examiners need only:
Ø produce 1 group of C candidates as opposed 3 groups
Ø draft a typical C exam paper and understudy a C examiner
Ø carry out a C examination under the mentorship of a C examiner
To make this happen we need Clubs to advise us (PCAWA) of when you will be
holding a C examination. If you have had trouble in the past in finding a C examiner
then we are trying in the longer term to solve that problem but we need your information,
so we can match C examinations with would-be examiners.
Please let us know so we can focus our effort.
