What our Coaches say?
"The online learning portal provides coaches and volunteers in Special Olympics Thailand the resources to gain knowledge with convenience and at each individual’s pace. Thai translated courses enable more coaches to access the learning portal and to be certified by SOI. It is the basis for advancement in SO Thailand's coaching development pathway."
"A very important tool in today's era. It is convenient for the coaches to get certified for the work they are doing, help us to evaluate the coaches who are with us who are effective and those who have faded away. We have no doubt that each and every person trained by us will grab this opportunity to re-register on an international platform. It is a very prudent and well thought scheme/project/App."
