This is just a simplified explanation of the AMACS courses.
INFORMATION UPDATE: There is no doubt having the right qualifications to do a job is essential for any business. The martial arts industry has changed dramatically in its position on instructor qualifications over the years. We feel it is essential to blend business and coaching training in a qualification for club owners to really benefit.
Having instructor qualifications recognised by the government, industry bodies, insurance companies is essential for club owners but they also need the consumer tick as well, to their build business.
The Australian Martial Arts Coaching System (AMACS) ticks all the boxes as it was created with extensive consultation with industry. The courses are government recognised and use the most specific martial arts instructor’s material in Australia. Running through Martial Arts Australia (MAA) and underpinned by the YMCA’s (National Institute of Sports Industry Training - RTO 3979) it has other endorsements. As the YMCA is non-profit and MAA subsidises costs it has allowed AMACS to maintain very low prices.
The Instructor Courses: There are three levels that can be obtained with a flexible completion time frame. Upon completion of each level, two certificates are issued one from the RTO (units of competency) and the other co-branded from AMACS and MAA giving instructors that extra industry credibility.
