USA Triathlon reserves the right to assign or deny a CEU value to Non-USAT seminars and conferences. CEU values are based upon relevancy to triathlon coaching and are assigned by USA Triathlon, not by what another organization assigns. Continuing education does NOT include the daily activities of a coach such as attending training, leading training rides, meeting with athletes, etc. CEUs will not be awarded to courses that are deemed to be in direct competition with existing USAT programs. Examples include webinars, symposiums, mentorship programs, and triathlon coaching certification programs among others.

Coaches are responsible for tracking their CEUs, getting Non-USAT courses accepted for Non-USAT CEUs, and recording their CEUs in their recertification application. USA Triathlon is not responsible for tracking individual coaches CEUs.

Please note that the CEU opportunities listed below are not exclusive, they are simply the most common CEUs earned by coaches. Credit for Non-USAT courses are awarded with a maximum of 5 Non-USAT CEUs per course. Please note, unless the course is listed on this page, it needs to be reviewed by USA Triathlon Coaching Education Staff by emailing Hope.Graham@usatriathlon.org 

**Recertification of any of the below certifications is worth half of the original certification CEU value.

**Non-USAT CEU amounts subject to change without notice
