Foundation Course | Semester 1 | Modules 1-4

Course Introduction

Welcome to the ALTIS Foundation Course, and congratulations for taking the next step in your education to better yourself as a Coaching professional.

We are truly excited to share the contents of this course with you. You now have lifetime access to this curriculum, the contents of which have been thoroughly researched, and represent the product of decades of work, study, experimentation, and scientific exploration.

Below are a few important details about what to do next …

1. Familiarize yourself with the course structure

In order to help you progress through the course as effectively as possible, the material is broken up into 12 modules.

All modules are now live for you to start working through, in series. However, to progress onto the next module in series, you will find a multiple choice test which needs to be completed. The pass mark is 80%, and the test can be retaken if this mark is not achieved on the first go.

If you have purchased full course access with all 12 modules, you do not need to do anything more than work your way through each module in turn now. If you have chosen to purchase the course by Semester you now have access to the first four modules only. In this instance, we will show how to purchase the next Semester in a few simple steps after you have completed Semester 1.

Remember, full course access includes:

      • 12 modules of bespoke content, featuring 109 sections written by some of the most experienced Coaches in Performance Sport.
      • Over 340 videos.
      • 140 hours of guided learning content including further learning materials and resources.
      • 10% savings on Apprentice Coach Program (ACP) enrollment, because we’d love for you to join us onsite, and see us put the principles discussed within this course into practice.
      • NSCA recognition, with the bonus of 2.0 CEUs in category D, for certified individuals who successfully complete the whole course; representing the maximum level of CEUs that can be awarded in any single activity.

If you have previously purchased the first Semester only, please email us to unlock Semester two and three. As of April 2019, we are only offering the course as a whole.
