The structure of these programmes allows can be delivered together over a two day period, or separated into their accreditations based on the demands of the district or zone.
The cost structure is based on a minimum of 10 paying candidates for the courses to be run cost neutral, and in that way wensuring the sustainabilitiy of the programme.
Candidates may come from a combination of the sporting codes involved alleviating pressures on smaller districts / Zone to come up with the minimum number of attendess alone for a course to be run.
Each candidate completing the FAO course will also receive a NZRL FAO shirt as a part of their course costs.
