With the COVID-19 crisis disrupting in-person educational opportunities across the country, we're pleased to announce that our Level 1 and Level 2 Coaching Certification Course will now be offered online. 

These courses will be held completely online, all you need is an active internet connection. A barbell, or dowel, if available, will be helpful, but not required for the course.

At the conclusion of the course, and successful completion of the online examination, you will earn your USA Weightlifting Coaching Certification, the only coach certification recognized by the sport of Weightlifting in the United States.

In addition to our full course curriculum these online courses will offer additional content on error correction and programming. Virtual office hours will also be available to provide participants with additional Q&A and direct assistance from certified USA Weightlifting instructors.
