Course Information

Triathlon Foundation Coach

On completion of the qualification, you will be able to plan and deliver safe coaching activities under the supervision of a more qualified coach.

The course follows a blended learning approach involving a series of self-led online learning modules, two online workshops facilitated by a tutor, and one face-to-face development day.

You are required to complete all components of the course, including attending all online workshops and the face-to-face day, as well as completing all units of the e-learning content, and submitting a coaching diary.

Rather than completing an end-of-learning assessment task, the tutor will ensure that they check in with you throughout your learning experience to make a formative assessment of your level of competence and understanding.
