Schedule: CAP I HE course schedule is flexible per your hours and convenience.
Instructors: Course is self-taught and self-paced; there are no live instructors.
Course Length: Course length depends on participant's time invested. The required CAP I HE exam must be taken online and passed with a 90% or better the first time. Falling short of that requirement will result in a coach having to complete a full onsite CAP I course and forfeit the opportunity to complete the CAP I HE route. Keep in mind: this CAP I certification is a direct path to attending and completing a CAP II course for certification. The CAP II course will consist of two full days, typically a Saturday and Sunday. This additional time should be accounted for in the CAP I HE course length. Approximately 15 - 18 hours total in a two-day classroom and on court presentation format.Cost: Varied, price range below is subject to change based on specific course options. This is a guideline only.
