CHPC Level 1 Course
Be the Standard.
No Pre-requisites for Enrollment
Many top certifications have pre-requisites such as degrees, or specific employment. We do not have pre-requisites. Anyone with an open mind, looking to coach in a high performance environment is welcome.
A Comprehensive, Combined Education
Many certifications are heavy on the theory and light on the application, while others skip straight to "what to do" without teaching the why for the what. The CHPC Level 1 course combines both academic and applied education.
Speak and understand the language of the field. Coaches will learn the fundamental sport sciences that our methods are based upon, taught in a manner that can immediately be put into practice.
