Eligible coaches can earn continuing education credit for USATF Level 3, USAT, NSCA and Athletics Canada.
USATF Level 3 Credit
The USATF Coaching Education Level 3 program is a scientific, knowledge-based seminar. One of the objectives of the Level 3 program is to provide coaches with comprehensive knowledge in a specific event group, including sport science and training theory. The Level 3 program covers "cutting edge" sport science concepts and event-specific knowledge from a scientific perspective. The Level 3 seminars prepares an individual to coach at the national/international level.
Level 3 seminars are open to anyone wishing to attend (prior USATF courses are not required). However, in order to obtain Level 3 Coach status, a participant must already be a Level 2 Coach. If you are a Level 2 Coach you may obtain Level 3 Credit for this course by requesting it during the registration process and providing a current 2015 USATF Membership number.
*USATF requires an additional $25 fee paid directly to them and an assessment which is completed after the course to secure Level 3 Credit.
