What is an Area of Focus?

Areas of Focus are a single day coaching course that diving dive deeper into one of four core areas:  Short Course, Long Course, Youth and Junior, and Paratriathlon. Coaches must take a minimum of one area of focus for their recertification. The first area of focus course will not gain a coach any Continuing Education Units (CEUs). If you choose to take an additional area of focus, the course will be worth five (5) USAT CEUs. Areas of focus will also be used as a pre-requisite for any further advancement in the coaching pathway. For example, if a coach wanted to take a Level II Short Course Certification, I they would need to have taken the Short Course Area of Focus from Level I. All courses will build upon each other moving forward.
