The International Cricket Council (ICC) have launched the online modules for their Level 1 Coaching certificate, which double as STAGE 2 of the USA Cricket Level 1: Coaching Fundamentals Course. STAGE 1, the ICC Foundation Certificate Course was released earlier in January.
Both components are delivered entirely online and are open to anyone seeking to take their first step on the coaching ladder and can be accessed by clicking this link.
