According to the official, the main topics studied are sports management, organisational techniques, sports market communication and combating the use of banned substances.

Other chief instructors at the course include NOCC secretary- general Vath Chamroeun, NOCC Medical Science Committee president Sdeung Chea, vice president of the National Training Center Keo Sareth and vice president of the Minsitry’s Physical and Sports Education department Beung Kimtor.

“This is the last training course in 2014, and in 2015, we will have similar events but we will focus on provinces further away,” said Vath Chamroeun.
