Accredited Prior Learning
Candidates normally complete the qualfications in order from UKCC Level 1 to UKCC Level 3. Accredited Prior Learning (APL) allows a triathlon coach who has not completed the UKCC Level 1 in triathlon, but has the necessary experience and skills to enrol straight onto the Level 2 UKCC triathlon course. View the APL form below for more details.
UKCC Triathlon Level 3
The level 3 qualification is currently in review with British Triathlon, Triathlon Scotland, Triathlon England and Welsh Triathlon. It is anticipated that the new level 3 will run in autumn 2017. For further information, please contact Doug. Please note that we recommend candidates gain at least 2 years practical coaching experience in addition to the pre-requisite hours after completing their level 2 before considering undertaking their level 3.
