Level 2 Diploma 

New for 2018 we will be adding a fourth qualification to our coaching pathway – the Level 2 Triathlon Coaching Diploma.

This will sit as a progressive bolt on to the existing Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Triathlon, specifically designed toward coaches who wish to either set up a coaching business or coaching individual clients.

We are very aware that to date, 1:1 coaching has been reserved for Level 3 coaches only, and we want to expand that to include level 2 Diploma coaches too.


  • 2 full learning days.
  • Webinars
  • Online assessment

What will I learn?

  • The 1:1 coaching model
  • Understanding the Elements of Individual performance
  • Selecting Athlete’s (The “chemistry match”)
  • Athlete Profiling

Level 3

The Level 3 Certificate in Coaching Triathlon (L3CCTRI) is designed for coaches who are committed to becoming the best coach they can be, with a desire of improving both their theoretical and practical coaching skills.

The Level 3 course is interactive and involves group discussions, presentations, quality guest speakers (coaches and athletes) and most importantly practical coaching experiences throughout. It has been designed to build on the training and experience gained at Level 2 to further develop your skills as a triathlon coach and introduce you to the more specific skills of working with individual athletes.
