The goal of the RRCA Coaching Certification Program is to create a national community of knowledgeable and ethical coaches. The certification course emphasizes how to be a successful coach, whether coaching individuals, small groups, or large group training programs, such as 5k, half marathon, or marathon training programs.
The two-day course includes 16 hours of in-person coursework followed by an online, multiple-choice exam with immediate results. The curriculum includes lecture, group work, and interactive exercises, including working in teams to build training programs for novice and experienced runners.
The cost for the two-day certification class is $325*. Courses are limited to 35 participants. Classes tend to fill quickly, so register as soon as possible.
*Fees for courses held at the RRCA National Convention are higher as additional meals and activities are included.
