Triathlon Group Coach - Stirling

 

Important: Subsidy Application

Please ensure that you complete the Education Subsidy Application Form below BEFORE you sign up for the course (deadline is 1 month prior to your course start date).  This is to ensure that you pay the correct amount for your course if eligible for the Education Subsidy.

Education Subsidy Application Form - Currently unavailable until January 2024

Read more about the Education Subsidy process here.

Course Sign Up Process

The course sign up on Entry Central is application based, which means that we have to approve all sign ups before a spot is taken. We will not approve any sign ups until the Subsidy Applications have been assessed for that course. Everything will be based on a first come first served basis, and will be processed in date order.

Course Information

This qualification is designed to build upon the knowledge, skills, and competencies developed through the Foundation Coach qualification. On completion, you will be able to independently plan, prepare, deliver, and evaluate coaching sessions, and mentor and oversee fellow coaches. You will be able to help participants prepare for Triathlon racing.

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