FIJI Rugby Union coaching director Franck Boivert has advised the participants of the International Rugby Board (IRB) level 2 coaching clinic to get assessed as soon as possible.
Twelve coaches in the Western Division were part of the two-day course at Nadi's HPU Gym last week and yesterday 11 coaches from the Eastern Division completed their three-day course at FRU's Rugby House in Suva.
Boivert said this part of the clinic was just the theoretical bits and the rest was up to the coaches to carry out.
Renowned coaches and former national reps Jope Tuikabe and national coaches Alifereti Dere and Timoci Wainiqolo were part of the clinic.
"We have worked with selected coaches who we believed had the necessary experience or the IRB Rugby Ready Certificates," Boivert said.
"However, this was just the theoretical part and it is not the end of the clinic," he said.
He said the coaches would only be accredited with level two coaching certificates once they completed the exam and practical assessment.
"They can sit for the exam whenever they want but for the assessment part, they will have to call us up and ask us to attend their training sessions.
"Both or either FRU development officer Sale Sorovaki or I can attend their training session and have a look at how they implement whatever they have learnt from the clinic.
"So it is basically up to them when they want to be certified."
