USA Triathlon reserves the right to assign or deny a CEU value to NON-USAT seminars and conferences. CEU values are based upon relevancy to triathlon coaching and are assigned by USA Triathlon, not by what another organization assigns.

Coaches are responsible for tracking their CEUs, getting NON-USAT courses accepted for NON-USAT CEUs, and recording their CEUs in their recertification application. USA Triathlon is not responsible for tracking individual coaches CEUs.

Continuing education does NOT include the daily activities of a coach such as attending training, leading training rides, meeting with athletes, etc.

Please note that the CEU opportunities listed below are not exclusive. They are simply the most common CEUs earned by coaches. If you are taking course that you would like to get approved for NON-USAT CEUs, please email the Education Program Coordinator. Credit for NON-USAT courses are awarded with a maximum of 5 NON-USAT CEUs per course. Please note, unless the course is listed on this page, it needs to be approved by the Education Program Coordinator to be accepted for NON-USAT CEUs.

**Recertification of any of the below certifications is worth half of the original certification CEU value.
