Recognition for Prior Learning (RPL) is for coaches who may have done formal training overseas or in recognised tertiary institutions, and would like to credit qualifications across to GymSports New Zealand coaching qualification.

The RPL application process is as follows:

  1. Complete the Coaching Application form
  2. Complete the appropriate Junior Online Module form and / or Senior Online Module form – these will help the assessors place applicants on the GymSports NZ coaching pathway
  3. Include all relevant documentation of the formal training / qualifications in the Coaching Application form
  4. Submit to GymSports NZ

Applications will be assessed by a panel made up of the GymSports NZ Sport Education Manager, the relevant SDC Coaching Advisor and one other independent assessor and the applicant will be advised accordingly.
