Level 1 Recertification

USATF Coaching Education has implemented a re-certification component to the Level 1 curriculum. Re-certification for Level 1 coaches will be required on a 4-year cycle. To open the new re-certification, a “grandfather clause” will be offered from January 1, 2013, through December 31, 2020.

A coach who received a Level 1 certification prior to January 1, 2013, and has not obtained an USATF Level 2 certification must meet the new re-certification guidelines. A coach who fails to re-certify through the 2020 Olympic quadrennium as of December 31, 2016, will be removed from the USATF coach certification database.
