Where Should You Begin?
To improve the caliber and professionalism of sports coaching in Singapore, the NROC was established in 2003. This helps ensure that all coaches have a minimum level of technical proficiency and that all active coaches keep improving.
You might be unsure where to begin if you recently passed and registered with NROC. The first step in launching any business is to find a customer. You might think about becoming an instructor for our team of coaches, and we’ll help you learn all the necessary teaching methods.
Join us as a network of linked swim schools after gaining all that knowledge! Currently, we are linked with more than 100 swimming schools. We aid in the promotion of swim schools and the enrolment and certification of all swimming coaches.
