- Road Runners Club of America: The RRCA coaching certification program focuses on creating a community of coaches that can help runners that are focused on all distances — from 5ks to marathons. It includes a weekend intensive course, a final exam and a requirement to be First Aid/CPR certified. You can learn more about the RRCA Coaching Certification Process HERE.
- USATF Coach: This coaching certification requires an online course. It will certify you as a coach to teach track and field to youth. In addition to running, you’ll learn essential information for jumping and throwing. There are different levels of certification (e.g., Level 1, Level 2, etc.). You can learn more about becoming a USATF Coach HERE.
- Pose Method Specialist Certification: I am not as familiar with this running coach certification, but it is offered through the Romanov Academy of Sports. You receive the title of “Running Technique Specialist,” which is designed to help you understand how to train runners effectively and safely. It is offered to a variety of people, including sports and healthcare professionals. Learn more about the Pose Method Running Technique Specialist Certification HERE.
- Marathon Coach: The North American Academy for Sport Fitness Professionals offers a certification to become a Marathon Coach. Before I became RRCA certified, I briefly looked at this, but preferred the RRCA designation because I learned how to train at all levels. This only focuses on the marathon, whether you do it on an individual or group setting. You can learn more about the NAASFP Marathon Coach certification HERE.
