Guyana Chronicle article.

Georgetown, Guyana - The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) has nominated five cricket coaches to attend the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB)-sponsored Tutor/Assessor course at the University of Technology in Jamaica.

The five coaches selected are Esaun Crandon, Reon King, Julian Moore, Rayon Griffith and former GCB Cricket Development Officer Colin Stuart.

The WICB, in an effort to certify and standardise coaching in the West Indies, partnered with UTECH and the English Cricket Board to devise a curriculum that will ensure coaching techniques and methods throughout the region follow the same path.

The Tutor/Assessor course is designed to train practising Level 2 coaches to teach the Level 1 and Foundation courses.

The first intake to the University of Technology in Jamaica is set to begin in the new semester and would be fully sponsored by the West Indies Cricket Board. All Territorial Development Officers and Development Officers of the members in the WICB are required to attend.

Applicants for the Tutor/Assessor course must be a Level 2 coach and computer literacy is required for participation in the programme which will be managed and supervised by facilitators from the University. Upon completion of the programme, all successful participants will receive certification.
