The Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association recognizes the following Ohio interscholastic coaches who have recently earned national coaching accreditation from the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) and the NFHS Coach Education Program.

The Accredited Interscholastic Coach (AIC) and the Certified Interscholastic Coach (CIC) accreditations are earned through the NFHS Coach Education and Certification Program. The AIC and CIC are national professional credentials offered to individuals who are currently coaching or aspire to coach at the interscholastic level. The attainment of these national certifications demonstrates the completion of a series of courses offered by the NFHS that will enhance the ability of the coach to better serve the student, the school, the community and the profession of coaching.

The AIC and CIC accreditations are additional training opportunities over and above the Ohio coaching licensure as issued by the Ohio Department of Education for interscholastic coaches.  Several school districts in Ohio are now utilizing or are considering the NFHS Coach Education accreditations as requisites for their school coaches.
