In 2008, the ITU started a process to accredit National Federations’ Coaches Education Programmes, with six National Federations being accredited.
At the start of 2017 a project was initiated, with the ITU working with International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE) and been supported by British Triathlon to update and expand the process for accreditation, using the Quality in Coaching (QiC) model developed by the ICCE.
The objective of the programme is to share and collaborate on best practice in coach education and for the ITU to be the supporting organisation that helps National Federations to improve and enhance their coach education programmes. The accreditation process itself seeks to ask questions of the National Federation so that it can identify areas to work on and enhance its current provision. Whilst there is a degree of needing to meet certain requirements, the key focus in on shared continual development.

During the end of 2017 a pilot phase of the process was completed, and we are pleased to say that the following federations have been through the process and are now officially ITU Accredited Coach Education Programmes:
