Each of the candidates' competencies will be assessed and only those candidates who successfully complete the Hockey India Coaching Education Pathway Level '2' Coaching Course on the basis of the assessment criteria, will be provided the necessary certification.

"It was fantastic to conduct the Hockey India Coaching Education Pathway Level '1' Coaching Course 2021 in New Delhi and Bhubaneswar in January and February. We could see the difference between organizing the course on-ground and conducting the course virtually. The candidates were able to understand the various coaching techniques in a much better way when the course was held on-ground and therefore I am delighted that the Hockey India Coaching Education Pathway Level '2' Coaching Course 2021 will be conducted on-ground as well. As always, the safety of all the persons involved in the course will be our highest priority and we will ensure that everyone is following the Covid-19 protocols and safety measures in New Delhi.
