Course Information

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.

The course will offer you the appropriate training, education, skills and more importantly insurance that will formally enable you to coach individuals on a 1:1 basis, thus, widening the level 2 coaches’ remit.

Following successful pilots in 2021, most courses will now be fully online.


The course is a period of 6-9 months consisting of:

  • Approximately 12-15 hours of online classroom or a mixture of online & face to face sessions depending on the course you are booking onto.
  • 2-3 additional Webinars. Dates and times of the webinars may be confirmed after the initial learning sessions are completed.
  • Online assessment

In addition, there will be 30-50 hours of home study which includes:

  • Pre-course work (allow 2-4 hours).
  • Planning and delivery of a 12-week athlete programme.
  • Completion of online tasks.
  • Review of online learning resource.
