Special Services Coaching Permit
The Special Services Coaching Permit is valid for coaching in all Nebraska schools unless someone applies for a nonpublic certificate only. Once issued, a Special Services Coaching Permit expires August 31 in the fifth year following the year of issuance.
The requirements for a Special Services Coaching Permit include the following:
- An application and fee in the TEACH system (Please note that registration for TEACH is required before an application can be submitted.)
- Fingerprints (required only if someone has lived outside of Nebraska in the past five years)
- Complete the “Fundamentals of Coaching” and “First Aid, Health and Safety” courses. Both courses can be found on the NSAA website and are facilitated by National Federation of High Schools (NFHS).
- Coaching Human Relations Training – Completion of the two courses taken through the NFHS will meet the human relations requirement for a coaching permit only.
