Design guidelines

National Sporting Organisations (NSOs) that are eligible to be part of the NCAS or NOAS can design accreditation programs for registration with the Australian Sports Commission (ASC). NCAS and NOAS programs must meet the requirements outlined in the ASC's Accreditation Program Design Guidelines - download a copy below. The Guidelines are separated into two volumes - the Guidelines and the Appendices.

A template document which lists all the required content areas from the ASC's Accreditation Program Design Guidelines can also be downloaded below to assist in writing an accreditation program.

Accreditation progams are registered with the ASC for a four year period.

For those sports that are developing a new accreditation program for their coaches or officials, the information sheets below regarding Flexible frameworks and Entry level models for the NCAS and NOAS may assist.
