Instructor Accreditation


Intro | The Levels | Renew or apply | Other information

To better serve our members and to protect and assist sensei and instructors, a scheme was introduced on 29 December 2007, to train, develop and accredit members who perform teaching or instructing roles within the AKR, to reach certain benchmarks and agree to defined ethics and principles.

The first steps were:

  • To accredit all then currently active members who were previously recorded by AKR as being accredited in the Australian Sports Commissions (ASC) National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS). Eq., a member who was previously recorded by AKR as an NCAS Level 2 Kendo Coach, may be accredited as an AKR IAS Level 2 Kendo Instructor.
  • Introduce a new AKR AIS level for entry level instructors  (Level O). The new AKR IAS Level O is the entry level for all new AKR instructors.

Note: If you are an instructor and are not on the Instructors list, please first ensure that you have sent ALL the required documents; then contact your State Association to enquire the progress of your accreditation.
