Renewing a coaching permit in Connecticut


If you already hold a coaching permit in Connecticut, you only need to complete a few steps to renew your permit.

Step 1: Required Courses

Before you renew your permit, you must complete the following courses:


  • Concussion refresher course
  • 15 clock hours of CEU module courses
  • First aid
  • CPR

    CPR and first aid courses must be completed in person. Online-only formats will not be accepted.

    Step 2: Apply

    After you have completed the required courses, you are free to apply for your permit. Use the Connecticut Educator Certification System (C.E.C.S.) to apply online. If you prefer a paper-based application, submit an ED185 form.

    Step 3: Submit Your Documents

    Emailed or faxed paper-based applications and forms with signatures cannot be accepted. Mail all required documents to the following address:

    Connecticut State Department of Education
    Bureau of Educator Standards and Certification
    P.O. Box 150471
    Hartford, CT 06115-0471


    Standard processing of coaching applications takes 6-8 weeks from the original date of submission.
