New D Licensing Course General information. 

PLEASE NOTE, there are three pre-requisites that must be fulfilled in order to enroll into this USSF "D" course:
1.  You must have completed and passed the USSF "E" course.
2.  You must have held the USSF "E" certificate/license for a minimum of six months.
3.  You must be at least 18 years of age.
Cost is $225.00
Cancellations less than 14 days prior to the start of the course date will be refunded at 50% of the course fee.  All fees are non-refundable once course begins.

****The USSF D Course has a new format.  The two weekends required to obtain the license must be a minimum of 3 months apart.  This enhances the learning environment and allows for candidates to spend time involved in practical on-field coaching within their own training environment prior to returning to complete the second weekend including testing.  It also adds time for a mentorship component with the staff instructors.  Below are the dates for the first weekend of the course and the potential second weekend.  Confirmation of the second weekend's dates will be announced at the beginning of the course.  Finally, after completing the first weekend portion, you can return for the second weekend at any state scheduled times after the 3 month period. 
For example, you can come back and test at another second weekend in a later course when scheduled.  This gives you more time to prepare for the testing and/or fit your schedule as needed.
Additionally, there are pre-course assignments once you register further information will be e-mailed to you.
Finally, you will receive an email a few days prior to the course with information on parking, where/when to meet on Friday, what to bring, etc…Please contact Kirk Nelson at knelson@unr.edu<mailto:knelson@unr.edu> in regards to any questions.
