It is expected that the hosts will cover all associated travel costs including transfers and airport parking if applicable, accommodation, and meal expenses.
Please note that on occasions, a Coaching Candidate may accompany a Certified Coach for training purposes. All costs of that candidate would be covered by BHNZ. The Candidate would be expected to lead at least several short sessions such as warm-up routines and other specific teaching exercises as agreed with the coach, and would be available to give PVIs and coach quartets at no extra cost.
