OK. Latest courses are coming up and looking for expressions of interest by 15th of July. Its important to register your interest even though you may not be able to make the first available dates.

http://www.nsw.cycling.org.au/site/cycl ... 4.6.13.pdf

Its a two day course.

Pre-requisites are:
First Aid
Working with Children Background Check
Online Training as per above info sheet

I've got an email request to CNSW to find out if the First Aid and Background check is essential prior to undertaking the coaching skills course as I suspect its not, but these must be furnished in order for the licence to be granted. I will get back to you once I have an answer.

Here's info on Children Background Checks

http://www.kids.nsw.gov.au/Working-with ... dren-Check

Here is some FAQs on Coaching and First Aid minimums:

Because there have been no courses available for the past 9 months, I have had various people contact me casually about interest, but now need to do a stock take and assessment of your interest.


Please PM me with your interest. Thanks Rajiv and Bill for letting me know you are interested.

Please call me on 0422 001 955 for some information on what we ask our coaches to do, so you can get a feel for what's involved and I can get a feel for your interest, experience and commitment. I'm on leave this week and have some downtime. FOR THOSE INTERESTED PLEASE CALL ME BETWEEN NOW AND FRIDAY 5th JULY if possible.

Marc - No need to call me as its already been agreed for you to proceed.

Register your interest with Cycling NSW as per the above in any case.


If approved to proceed, DHBC will reimburse any First Aid, Children Checks (don't think there is a cost here), and your Coach Training, once you have your coaching licence issues, and have joined our Ride Leader roster, and not before. If you can get your work to pay for First Aid, as a First Aider, then that's even better, but DHBC is more than happy to reimburse this.


One weekend rostered per month of both Saturday and Sunday. Leading Slowies, and either C25s or C28s. If we can get at least 3 coaches per week, this allows flexibility should 1 of the 3 coaches have a commitment/holiday/race on, as the other 2 can cover.


Commonsense, the requisite training, a load confident voice (if you can't shout no one can hear you) and commitment to be available regularly. You must be very comfortable riding C25s to take the C25s, and to take the C28s very comfortable riding with the C28s. You must be prepared to ride lead the C25s at all times as this is our target group, and C28s only if we have a C25 leader.

Thanks. Have had a few people come forward directly to me. That's great.

I forgot to attach the expression of interest form to Cycling NSW each person should send through to CNSW, once contacting me. THanks

Hi Geoff,

I just got a response from Barrie McClean @ Cycling NSW saying that I missed the EOI deadline. He suggested I keep an eye out for the next training round. I've registered for the Apply First Aid course anyway, so at least that'll be out of the way by the time the next round of training comes by.
