UKCC Triathlon Level 1
This qualification prepares coaches to assist in the delivery of coached triathlon sessions.
It is a competence-based qualification, with informal assessments for each module and practicals for swim, bike and run sessions. A formal assessment on the final day sees candidates deliver a 10-minute coached session from a session card. The course takes around eight weeks to complete.
Candidates preparing to coach children or vulnerable adults will also receive a Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) check as part of their training.
