While the ITTF Level 1 Course is a general preparation course for coaches working with beginners and especially children, the Level 2 Course covers how to teach much higher level technical skills to fulfill the needs of athletes from 1800-2400 USATT Level.

Coaches must score a minimum of 5 points on each of the two exams to pass the Level 2. Coaches scoring a minimum of 7 points on both exams with a total of 15 or more points are listed as Level 2* and are eligible to take an ITTF L3 Course in the future. Scores less than 5 on either exam do not pass the course. After the course, 50 hours coaching practice must be completed. From the 50 hours coaching practice, 5 hours must be supervised by the ITTF Course Conductor or a person appointed by the ITTF Course Conductor.
