British Triathlon delivers the qualifications as an Approved Recognised Centre. Most sports work in this way and British Triathlon has been doing so since 2006.
All Level 1 & 2 qualifications are currently awarded by 1st4sport Qualifications.
The qualifications, developed in conjunction with 1st4sport Qualifications, are accredited onto the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF- Level 1 & 2), endorsed by the UK Coaching Certificate and recognised by World Triathlon, making the qualification a nationally and internationally recognised coaching qualification.
A number of practises and process take place to ensure the quality of our courses, including external and internal review.
In 2016, we undertook a significant review of the qualifications. This has been through an in depth planning, development and review process to ensure that learners have a world class learning experience, that closely aligns to the needs of triathlon.
The new level 2 diploma and High Performing Coach Program are awarded directly by British Triathlon.
Whilst our qualifications have been recognised by World Triathlon- it will depend on individual country to advise on the coaches remit and insurance cover.
