Completion of the Certification includes a post course experience of a possible maximum of 10 sessions (minimum) of supervised coaching with a Level 2 or higher ADAPT Qualified Coach, depending on the performance and experience of the candidate, which must be satisfactorily completed within 12 months of the end of the course before the candidate receives their certification.

It is recommended that this is completed within 3 months of the course; however you do have a maximum one-year registration period in which to complete this. These sessions will provide you with the opportunity to experience real life coaching and gain an understanding of what it is like to be a parkour coach, and are therefore fundamental to your learning. It is your responsibility to arrange and complete these sessions within the one-year registration period. If you are unable to access an ADAPT Level 2 qualified coach, there is a video submission process that can be accessed under special conditions.
Once you have completed any required supervised coaching sessions, you will need to send a copy (either photocopy or photograph/scan) of the completed supervised coaching record to:
Please keep the original supervised coaching record in your learner pack. You will not receive certification for the qualification until you have sent the signed record back.
