Accordingly the Australian Eight-Ball Federation’s National Coaching Accreditation Scheme provides co-ordinated training courses for coaches at three levels:-

LEVEL 1. Is an introduction to the principles of coaching and provides basic training in the skills required for teaching beginners, privately and in clubs.

LEVEL 2. Deals with the conduct of training programs for Club Competition players.

LEVEL 3. Involves the advanced theory and practice to develop Club players to reach National and International level and provide effective administration and guidance to Level 1 and 2 Coaches. Coaching courses do not, in themselves, provide everything the practising or prospective Coach needs to know and experience. However, by providing a frame work of fundamentals and a system of guidance and support, the Scheme aims to stimulate a process of self-improvement in coaching skills and knowledge.
