If I get a teachers license and I have the coaching authorization, may I add the coaching endorsement to my teaching license?


You may add the endorsement only if you took the individual courses for the minimum number of hours of college credit (NOT CEUs!):

  1. The theory of coaching (1 semester hour minimum)
  2. Human growth and development (1 semester hour minimum)
  3. Structure and function of the human body (1 semester hour minimum)
  4. The care and prevention of athletic injuries (2 semester hours minimum)

If you took a 3 semester hour coaching authorization program, you have not met minimum requirements for any of the individual requirements.
