While the majority of our coaches are trained in an in-class setting, the CAO also supports two distinct distance learning methods to provide coaches who are unable to attend an in-class course due to location, work, learning style or coaching schedule.
The home study program is intended for coaches who are unable to take an in-class multi-sport course.
Home study is a correspondence based learning method and the hours required for completion may be more than what is required of coaches attending an in-class course option.
The length of time to complete a home study varies by course and learning style of the individual. The home study format relies heavily on self-directed learning. All courses are given a 2 month completion period. Should you require an extension, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.

If you are planning on completing a Competition Development module through the distance learning home-study method, please note: The Competition Development Multi-sport Modules are targeted towards coaches who are working with athletes at the Provincial and National levels. These modules are very lengthy, challenging and time-consuming and are recommended only for coaches who are absolutely unable to attend an in-class course.
Online delivery is a means of providing an in-class experience to coaches who are unable to travel to an in-class course. Online courses are facilitator-led and group-based offered through a platform called Adobe Connect.
Please note: Only Psychology of Performance, Leading Drug Free Sport, Managing Conflict, Manage a Sports Program and Advanced Practice Planning Competition Development modules are available in this format.
Courses that are offered through remote access are labelled on the Course Calendar.
