Get Started

Certificate in Coaching Motorsport

Motorsport UK has developed the Motorsport Coach qualification (1st4Sport, level 2) to set the standard for coaching in motor sport.

The qualification will provide both personalised and collaborative experiences to develop and support coach learning, using a blend of face to face and online videos and workshops as well as practical observation and expert insights. It will cover technical, tactical, physical and mental skills and more importantly, the underpinning coaching principles drawn from best practice within the sporting industry.

This course is for anyone that’s supporting and developing a driver at any stage of their career from grassroots right through to elite.  You might be an existing instructor or motorsport coach wanting to develop your skills, or you may be brand new to motorsport coaching.  You might even be fulfilling a different supporting role in the industry such as a motorsport engineer, team manager, a parent or even a driver coaching another driver.  Whatever your motivation, this course will cover everything you need to know to make your coaching more successful and more effective.

Qualification Prerequisites

  • Be at least 17 years of age (18 years prior to certification)
  • Hold an instructor licence with ARDS/BARS/ARKS/AHASS OR evidence relevant equivalent technical competence / sporting experience
  • Have access to a device for the online resources and webinar delivery, ideally a laptop or PC
