Learn about the courses and certificates to get in order to become a certified NROC coach.
The National Registry of Coaches (NROC) is a database of coaches who have been fully certified under the Singapore Coach Excellence (SG-Coach) Programme, Standard First Aid certification and have met other supplementary requirements to qualify as a member.
These are the courses and certificates required to apply for NROC:
STANDARD FIRST AID W/ AED CERTIFICATE
Coaches may encounter incidences of emergency or injury during the course of coaching. It is essential that coaches are trained in the knowledge and skills in Standard First Aid, Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), and usage of Automated External Defibrillator (AED). This will prepare coaches for emergency situations and manage the risks involved in sports coaching.
Sport Singapore requires all NROC-registered coaches to have a valid Standard First Aid certificate. The Standard First Aid course should include both theoretical examination and practical assessment including AED, CPR, and bandaging of wounds, as stipulated by Singapore Resuscitation and First Aid Council (SRFAC).
