Every year Singapore Wushu Dragon & Lion Dance Federation conducts Wushu/Taiji Instructor Courses to accredit Wushu/Taiji coaches as part of the effort to raise the standard of Wushu and Taiji. To become a qualified coach, one has to attend and pass the SG Coach Level 1. The SG Coach Level 1 is the national standard for coaching qualifications. This programme consists of two fundamental components: Theory and Technical.

SG Coach Wushu Full Integration Level 1 is an all-in-one coaching course aimed at integrating sport-specific knowledge of Coaching Theory, Foundational Sport Science, and Wushu Technical Skills.
This course will be conducted primarily in English.

National Instructors & Coaches Association (NICA) was formed by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) to be the collective voice to support freelance coaches and instructors from sports, outdoor learning and adventure, visual and performing arts, fitness and wellness, and enrichment, to strengthen skills, standards and opportunities.

In supporting NICA members with skills deepening programmes such as the courses offer by Singapore Wushu Dragon & Lion Dance Federation, NICA members enjoy lower course fees through the Union Training Assistance Programme (UTAP) which provides 50% subsidy of the balance unfunded course fee, up to $250 per calendar year. Till 31 December 2025, NICA members aged 40 years and above will enjoy higher funding support up to $500 per calendar year, capped at 50% of unfunded course fee.
