A collaboration between the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) and Republic Polytechnic (RP), this course is hosted under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The course delivers knowledge and skills that are organised into six themes:
- Sports Eco-System
- Governance for Sports
- Sports Science
- Sports Events and Facilities Management
- Sports Coaching

These are important building blocks to enhance the competencies of executives for the planning and delivery of various types of sports programmes in schools, community or for commercial undertakings.
