General Course Information:
“The Mexico University of Triathlon has recently confirmed that they are not developing their coaching courses further in English at this stage and will focus on Spanish-speaking audiences of the Americas. World Triathlon would like to fill in this gap and make sure that progress opportunities are provided for English-speaking coaches initially certified by the Mexico University of Triathlon. We already mapped out the education structure of the Mexico University of Triathlon and identified the topics that Level 1 coaches would need to get familiar with in order to gain World Triathlon Level 1 recognition.
This course is only open to those individuals who responded to our call regarding continuing their coaching education in English on the World Triathlon Pathway.”
