Level 2 OCR Coach Certification

Overview

The Level 2 Obstacle Course Race (OCR) Coach certification is the entry level certification for fitness professionals working with people who wish to participate and compete in obstacle course races. It’s designed by World Obstacle, the Fédération Internationale de Sports d’Obstacles (FISO), the international governing body for obstacle sports and related events.

The course aim is to prepare fitness professionals in providing safe and enjoyable OCR training experiences from young people aged 12+ through to adults of any ability. It is also the first step towards higher level coach certification and is broken down into 3 parts.

Format

  1. There are a number of prerequisites required before achieving the level 2 coach certification that are tracked and managed by the British Obstacle Sports.
  2. People attending the course should be qualified gym/fitness instructors, personal trainers or higher-level qualified fitness professionals. Where someone does NOT have these, the level 2 coach programme integrates into the Active IQ level 2 in Gym Instructing and this can be dual certificated at extra cost via British Obstacle Sports.
  3. Level 2 OCR Coach certification consists of 3 modules covering theoretical principles delivered via webinar. Then an onsite day covering obstacle technique and strength, running technique and fitness, and how to plan and instruct coach-led sessions. This is typically integrated into the level 2 practical assessment.
