(June 12, 2020) - World Taekwondo Announced that due to the current pandemic the scheduled WT International Coach Certification Courses have been cancelled or postponed. 


World Taekwondo has decided to resume with the WT International Coach Certification Courses Via Online. The coaches who have successfully passed the course will be granted with a valid coach certificate identical to the certificate issued from the offline courses. WT believes that this new format will be beneficial to hosting MNAs and participating coaches in saving substantial amount of logistic cost while the quality of the education is maintained. World Taekwondo and the Global Membership System team will provide the online platform for registration and education. 




All coaches wishing to register to coach in a World Taekwondo G1 or G2 tournament in 2021 must take the World Taekwondo Level I Coach Certification Seminar in 2020.  The Level I Coach Certification will be mandatory beginning January 1, 2021
