Continuing Education Units (CEU) are authentic learning activities under direction of the USA Triathlon education department and personnel. These learning activities are designed to ensure USA Triathlon Certified Coaches keep their knowledge of industry trends, technology, and triathlon regulations relevant. CEUs are crucial for professional coaches to stay up to date with the most relevant triathlon coaching education as well as ensure each coach is well-rounded.
Continuing education does NOT include the daily activities of a coach or while performing the daily duties of another profession such as attending training, leading training rides, meeting with athletes, creating courses, coaching in a daily training environment, running or coaching at a camp or clinic, teaching, etc.
All USA Triathlon Certified Coaches are required to earn a minimum of 12 USAT CEUs to maintain their professional coach certification during each two-year cycle:
- 8 USAT CEUs
- 4 CEUs from any category: USAT, Adjuct or Institutional (can use multiple categories)
It is the responsibility of each certified coach to maintain a record and documentation for all completed CEUs.
