Retaining your Coaching Status (re-accreditation)

Written by  Sunday, 26 February 2017 14:34

Once you have qualified as a coach, you are accredited for 4 years. Your ASC endorsed Badminton Australia Coach ID Card will detail the expiry date.


During your 4 years, you need to be coaching and complete Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points by taking part in general and specific coaching courses and updates, attending coach education conferences or undertaking teacher training.


As a minimum you need to undertake at least 10 hours of coaching per year plus at least 20 CPD points. The ‘CPDs and the Coach Reaccreditation Policy and Procedure’ (hyperlink to resources page) gives more detail.


Badminton Australia want to ensure that its coaches can keep their experience sufficient and current, to have an accredited and knowledgeable coaching network. However, we also recognise that from-time-to-time, that coaches may take a break from the sport. We value and respect your experience. If you have taken a break from coaching but would like to get back involved in coaching there will be a route that you can take. If you have questions about how to get re-accredited and re-commence coaching after a break, please contact the National Education Manager at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please complete the Badminton Coach Reaccreditation Form to keep your coaching qualification in date.


To stay qualified and accredited you need the following:


Stage 1:

  • Take a Badminton Australia approved coaching course
  • Register as a member with Badminton Australia when you successfully complete the coaching course
  • This qualifies or accredits you as a coach, at the level of the course that you have passed, for four (4) years.


Stage 2:

  • You need to keep up-to- date – that is to you need to prove that you are coaching and that you have undertaken some professional coaching training or relevant education each year
  • The number of coaching hours and the amount or type of education/training depends on the level at which you have qualified.
