How to get certified

The 2 day Running Technique Coach Course and the 4 day Advanced Running Technique Coach courses combine both theory and practical coaching sessions, where you will be coached and coach others. All coaching sessions will be outdoors. To receive your certification, you are required to attend the entirety of the course, pass the practical coaching assessment and receive a pass mark on the multiple-choice questionnaire.

Once certified you will receive a certificate and a badge you can display online.

Once you have completed your 50 coaching hours you will be listed on our website as a Running Technique Coach with your location and contact details. The practical coaching hours are the most important part of your training. The knowledge and theory you gain will be consolidated and enhanced through practical experience. It is the coaching process that helps you develop the observation expertise to coach individuals and groups and know what changes you need to make.

For those candidates attending a course in person, the hours that you coaching during the course, may be used towards the 50 coaching hours as long as a coaching/observation log is filled out.
