CEO & Founder’s Welcome

The National Education & Athletic Certification Association has been decades in the making. Educators give so much of themselves to the profession that it was absolutely crucial that one of our own created a way to continuously advance in our profession while maintaining as much work-life-balance as possible!

Welcome – This Is The Right Time

There has never been a time in human history that educators can do more AND get more out of the coaching profession than right now.

- Tyler Brandt

With the advent of all of the technology that we possess we can not only teach at a capacity that was previously unknown to us but we can also learn at the same rate. By utilizing group knowledge and resources as well as all of the technology possible, every teacher, administrator and coach can gain knowledge and advance their careers at record pace.

At the NEACA we are committed to standing alongside you in the quest for excellence in the classroom, the locker room and in the administrative offices. We have engaged a community of incredible educators to ensure that this will be an incredibly positive experience for you.

Thank You

Jason Clark

    I’m taking the coaching renewal for the state of Iowa. I have watched the first video and uploaded the answers to the first video, but it will not allow me to move on. Please advice. My email is

    Thank you!

    1. coachbrandt

      Nicole – we personally check every assignment and then assign points. At that point you can advance or you may have to resubmit your assignment. I have approved your assignments & you can move forward.

      1. Nicole Lampe

        I realized I already have the concussion section from another class. Is a refund possible for this section?

        1. coachbrandt

          That is not included in the cost as it is a free certification. We just link you over to the NFHS Website anyway.

  2. Jim Hughes

    What else would I need to do after completing this course to be able to coach in Iowa

    1. coachbrandt


      The state requires that you are CPR Certified, you have the Concussion Course completed, that you have a Fingerprint background check completed and you complete an approved 55 Contact Hour coaching certification course.

  3. Andy greiner

    I completed the first section of the coaching authorization renewal package and it will not allow me to continue to class 2. Please advise. Thank you-Andy

    1. Jason Clark

      Hello Andy,

      Your assignments must be manually approved before you can continue on in the course. You are now able to progress as the assignments looked great! I have included instructions on the top of the course as well.

  8. BlayzeGrotegut

    Ive waited 6 days now and no one has checked my assignment, i also have rush so does that mean i should get my 80 dollars back

    1. coachbrandt

      After a review of your profile and assignments it looks like you submitted the Parent Meeting PPT in place of the Playtime Communication assignment. I am going to bet you have a resubmission email in your junk/spam from Jason Clark ( explaining as much. I will email Jason to verify but that is what I see is the issue. He will not be available until after he is done coaching with wrestling practice at Grandview University. We will be in touch soon.

      1. BlayzeGrotegut

        So does that mean coaching iowa high school wrestling this year is out of the question?

  9. BlayzeGrotegut

    I also never gotten an email stating anything about wrong submission

  10. Chris Whelan


    Is there any way to get a refund if you are within 30 days of purchasing the course and have not done any of the assignments?

    Thank you
    Chris Whelan

    1. coachbrandt

      Please check your email for my reply Chris.

  11. Chet Adams

    I need to know how to do the gap renewal process – I have taken some of the courses while in College. I am unsure how to get the process started to have transcripts sent and where to renew.

  13. Nathan Kitzinger

    I have completed the course. Thanks for the quick turnaround on assignment checking!

  14. Cliff Owen

    Coaach Brandt, I am taking the rush authorization course on line and am currently TRYING to take the 62 question quiz at the end of coaching theor portion. My computer keeps skipping questions and I cannot go back. Is a 100% required, if so how can I fix problem?

      Yes you can?

  16. Donnie Johnson

    Coach Brandt, is there a possibility to move from the standard program to the rush.

    1. coachbrandt

      Yes you can.

      1. Donnie Johnson

        Ok, Coach what would I need to do?

  17. Patty Calderwood

    I’m taking the Best Practices Mental Health course right now. I’m struggling to get to the upload portal. When I click on the assignment titles it does not take me to the portal. Sometimes I can mark complete and move on and other times I have gotten the portal. I have some assignments to upload can you send me a link or an email to send them to. I’m still progressing through the course but have assignments to upload. Thanks.

  18. Michael White

    I have watched about half of the video concerning Ethics, but now when I want to finish watching, the video box is blurred and there doesn’t seem to be a way to play it.

    1. coachbrandt

      I have not had any other complaints. Can you try switching browsers?

      1. Michael White

        I tried a different browser but it ended up that I just needed to restart my computer. Thanks for your help, though.

  19. Madie Vermeys

    How soon until my last section is approved as I need to get approved for my license as I need it now!

    1. coachbrandt


      We can not access your videos through the link you sent. We did email about this a few days ago. Please check your junk/spam folder and reply to that email with a link to your videos that we can access. Thanks

  20. Marsha Floyd

    I have completed the next step but it says waiting for approval. I have the form but I forgot to sign it. When will I get it approved I am trying to finish this class. I didn’t know if I need to resend it with my signature

  21. John Linsenmeyer

    I submitted my taping video and have not received feedback yet. I was curious as to when I can expect a response.


    1. coachbrandt

      Check your email for your resubmissions.

  22. Shelby Steen

    I have turned in an assignment and I am still waiting for it to be approved. It has been more than 48 hours. How much longer should I be expected to wait?

  23. Matt Mulford

    I am considering taking the Rush course. What is the fastest I could get through the course? I want to volunteer to help with wrestling, an unpaid position, the season has started, how fast could I get my coaching certification with the RUSH course? I am a high school teacher if that makes any difference.

    1. coachbrandt

      Matt – it all depends on the amount of time you have to put toward completing the course. It is the fastest way to compete the program in the state.

  24. Robert White

    Would someone please contact me via email or phone … Thank you.

    1. coachbrandt

      Robert – you can email or call anytime to the provided email or phone number on the site.

  25. Edward Radanovich

    Hi Coach Brandt,

    I just completed my Coaching Authorization Course and I was just curious if you knew the turn around time to receive transcripts? Just curious as this is the last thing I need to submit to the BOEE.

    Thank you,


    1. coachbrandt


      As stated in the Introduction video it will be approximately 2-3 days to get your Certificate from the CC then you upload that into your folder at the BOEE for them to process your folder.
