The first step to an RRCA Running Coach certification is to take Adult First Aid and CPR courses.
– these should be scheduled and completed before your RRCA certification course
– they must be hands-on/no online classes allowed
– they must provide certificates with an expiration date
– use a reputable provider in your area
– certificates must be submitted electronically with 60 days of course completion
I completed my certification bright and early last weekend, so bright and early that none of the other participants showed up. However, this was actually pretty nice because it was just the instructor and myself. That meant I got a ton of hands-on training time and didn’t have to wait around for anyone else. We spent the first few hours going through the CPR course, with hands-on practice and him asking me lots of questions, and then I was tested at the end. Then, we did the same thing the next couple hours with the first aid course. I passed both courses and have my certificate in hand. Step one on my journey to become an RRCA Certified Running Coach is done!
Next will be step two – the actual course. I will be attending in less than a month and am very excited.
Let me know-
How you ever taken a CPR or first aid course? This was my first time.
