Educated & Experienced

Every contributor to the NEACA is or has been a professional educator and coach. We do not claim to be experts in areas that we have never had personal experience. We have all dealt with the unruly student, the angry parent, the long hours, the poor pay and the loss of time with our family and LOSING!

REAL CONTENT – BECAUSE WE’VE REALLY BEEN THERE!

Our courses are filled with information that doesn’t come out of a book because what comes out of books doesn’t always work! With over 100 years of classroom teaching & professional coaching experience in urban, suburban and rural settings you will find concepts, ideas and solutions for the daily challenges that you face.

The Credible Contributor

One thing that we know is credibility in the fields of athletics & education requires 3 things:

  1. Appropriate Level of Education
  2. Appropriate Amount of Success
  3. Appropriate Length of Time

To be a contributor at the NEACE for courses in education requires a minimum of a Masters Degree in education (or in the course field), 80% of the teaching evaluations must have been at the distinguished level and the educator must have taught in a minimum of two schools. To be an educator in the athletic courses a contributor must have coached individual or team state champions, been in the classroom a minimum of 10 years as well as had a winning record over a 10 year period.

    where do you go to put the code in to start the course?

    1. coachbrandt

      John,

      That code is for the AEA Online system. You will enter that code on their platform to take the course.

    Once I have completed this course, how to I go about getting my official coaching certificate?

    1. coachbrandt

      A notification will be sent to SWCC to process your offcial certificate and then when you receive that you will upload that to your folder at the BoEE. Then it is up to the BoEE to get your folder processed. They usually take about 7 days or so.

    Can you take the course over a period of time? Like start and stop? Are there certain amounts of time you would have to set aside? Just want to get my head wrapped around this

    1. coachbrandt

      This is a completely online program that is self-paced. You can go through as fast or as slow as you like. We don’t have specific start or end dates and your program never expires!

      Thanks,

      Coach Brandt

    Can I take this course if I have my teaching license?

      Yes you can. It will provide you with your coaching license.

    Hi Coach Brandt,

    I have been coaching youth sports for about 15 years. I have an opportunity to coach at the 9th grade level, but need a coaching authorization. It has been a long time since I was a student. What type of curriculum does this course entail? I also work full time and I am curious on the approximate time frame to complete the course if I tried to get some work done every week (i.e. for someone who is not a student and is older compared to the average coach taking this course).

    Thank you so much for your time!

      Jon,

      This is a self-paced course that allows you to go at your own speed. The average student completes the course in 3-4 weeks. We have had students tale up to 3 years. The good thing is our course never expires so you truly can go at your own pace.

      We are a BOEE approved provider so we cover the Mandated Topics the state requires. It is completely online so you can take the entire course from you home or office or even on your phone! We are the least expensive option in the state while at the same time the most accessible!

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Coach Brandt

    How do I get started? I am trying to figure this out on my own as I am trying to become a volunteer coach (I am not a teacher). I contacted the BOEE and they were not helpful and their website is a joke. In fact my computer will not let me apply! It says “This website’s security certificate has been revoked, so you can’t go there at this time.” What? This is a government website! To say the least, I am frustrated because I have been trying to do this since early August. I would like to help the cross country team this fall (I now am accepting that this is probably not an option now but would like to help with track). On the NEACA site, the transitional caught my eye but the man I was in contact with at BOEE, told me that he would not advise doing the transitional because if it is not done right that it can take double the time and that he would recommend the coaching authorization.

    Any help you could give me to accomplish my goal will be appreciated.

      I sent you an email earlier this morning and have nit heard back – I wanted to make sure that you received it and are ready to go!
      Thanks,
      Coach Brandt

    How can we obtain proof of payment for the course?
    We would like to reimburse our new coach but he doesn’t have a paid invoice – he can only supply a copy of his bank statement & that is not sufficient documentation.
    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    1. coachbrandt

      Please have the coach reach out to us and we can supply him with another receipt. He would have gotten one via email but if he can’t find it then we can email him another one.

      Thanks,

      Coach Brandt
