Location:

The ADAPT Level 2 Coach Certification covers the vital elements of coaching science and methodology required to teach the practice of parkour safely, effectively and with confidence..

The Level 2 Coach Certification is an intensive learning experience delving deep into the science of expertise and learning and the principles, methods and core concepts of parkour coaching.
 
The certification is comprised of two parts: the Training Course, lasting for 5 days, and the Assessments, a 2 day phase.
 
Following completion of the Level 2 Course, candidates must prepare for and complete the Assessment phase between 3 months to 2 years following the course.
 
This is to allow suitable time for the content of the course to be absorbed and put into practice, and the feedback of the course tutor to be acted upon before attempting the assessments. Assessments are booked separately via this website.
 
The certification process involves a post-course self-reflection experience; 40 reflective coaching sessions must be satisfactorily completed by each participant within 24 months of the end of the course and before the Assessments. Evidence of these 40 sessions must be brought to your Assessment phase.

The Level 2 Coach Certification course lasts 5 days, each day starting at 09:00 and finishing at 18:00. Once you've booked your chosen course you'll be sent further information, including the exact address of the course and contact information for your host and tutor. If you need this information before booking, scroll down and Ask A Question.

Prerequisites
We ask that all candidates meet the following criteria:
  • 18 years of age or over
  • First Aid or recognised equivalent certification
  • A.D.A.P.T. Level 1 Coach Certified
  • Be able to communicate effectively in English (this includes listening, speaking, reading and writing). At certain courses, interpreters for the tutors will be provided, but please check ahead of the course as to whether you will be able to understand the information.

If you cannot meet the prerequisite requirements at the time of the course, you must present evidence of having done so within 18 months of the end of your course in order to receive information regarding assessments.

Finally, we recommend having at least 3-5 years worth of parkour training experience before attempting the course as you will be asked to demonstrate practical parkour competency, and 1-2 years assistant parkour coaching experience as you will be given coaching scenarios to work with throughout the course.
