  • This might be a better question for Writers SE as this is not really a language question. Personally, I think it is OK to write the full term and abbreviation the first timer it appears in the text.

There isn't really a rule. Its a matter of style and taste.

Personally, I don't like to be redundant. I would only write it once.
