James Madison University

The American Sport Education Program (ASEP) is proud to partner with James Madison University (JMU) to offer our Coaching Principles online course to teachers and coaches around the country for continuing education units (CEUs) and under-graduate and graduate-level credits.

This option is especially valuable to elementary, middle school, and high school faculty-coaches who are required to earn continuing education credit to maintain their teaching certificate (and to earn a raise).
