Coach Practitioner

Our coaching memberships are ideal for coaches working across sports who value recognition of their qualifications and commitment to ongoing CPD by the sport and physical activity sector’s chartered professional body.

For coaches who specialise in a single sport, your governing body’s licensing and recognition scheme will continue to be a great choice.

Entry requirements

Applicants must hold a CIMSPA-recognised qualification awarded within the last five years. If your qualification is older than 5 years, evidence of ongoing CPD will be required.
