At Kettering Health, we help coaches obtain the educational opportunities they need to grow their knowledge and advance their careers. We support their taking classes throughout the year so they can keep their professional credentials up to date.
We understand the importance of professional credentials for athletic coaches. In Ohio, coaching activity permits are required for individuals who will direct, supervise, or coach a student-activity program. This specifically involves athletics, regular physical activity, or activities with health and safety considerations. We provide classes that satisfy permit requirements.
