In 2008, the World Triathlon started a process to accredit National Federations’ Coaches Education Programmes, with six National Federations being accredited.
At the start of 2017, a project was initiated, with the World Triathlon working with International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE) and supported by British Triathlon to update and expand the process for accreditation, using the Quality in Coaching (QiC) model developed by the ICCE.
The objective of the programme is to share and collaborate on best practices in coach education and for the World Triathlon to be the supporting organisation that helps National Federations to improve and enhance their coach education programmes. The accreditation process itself seeks to ask questions of the National Federation so that it can identify areas to work on and enhance its current provision. Whilst there is a degree of needing to meet certain requirements, the key focus is on shared continual development.

Five years after launching the programme, the first initial accreditations from 2017 have been reviewed during 2022. We are pleased to say that currently the following federations have been accredited (and in some cases also re-accredited) and are now officially World Triathlon Accredited Coach Education Programmes:
