The certification is a participation trophy, no question about it. It in itself is a waste of time. The effort each coach puts into the job is a different story but you're not going to learn to coach from the seminar. I'd say MOST of the "Daddy coaches" you all refer to in the EHF and E9 all have some pretty good credentials. I don't see a single program reach out and pay coaches to coach, so what you're left with are volunteer dads who i'd say do a pretty **** good job.
