The 1st4sport Level 3 Certificate in Coaching Rowing is perfect for learners interested in coaching rowing sessions, including potentially within a high performance team, as well as for Level 2 rowing coaches interested in developing and enhancing their coaching skills.

This qualification is recognised as the industry standard Level 3 qualification for coaching rowing by the National Governing Body for rowing in the UK, British Rowing, Scottish Rowing and Welsh Rowing.

It is endorsed by UK Coaching.

Gives learners the knowledge, skills, and confidence to develop rowers through sessions in a club environment

Qualification Progression

Following a period of practice as a qualified coach, learners may choose to develop their skills by participating in continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities offered within Rowing and other coaching-related organisations. Learners may gain the opportunity to develop their learning and knowledge by volunteering or gaining employment as a coach at the appropriate level. In addition, they may wish to progress their knowledge of coaching methods and practices in a specific area of interest and may undertake workshops and/or alternative learning opportunities offered by other relevant organisations, such as sports coach UK.

Holders of this Certificate may seek employment, paid or unpaid, as a Rowing coach. Learners should look to develop your learning and knowledge of Rowing by working with other, more experienced, coaches.
