Why the foundation course
You’ve spent hours trying to navigate the 'wild west' of coaching certification by mixing and matching pieces that don't always work together to create a reliable, fundamental foundation.
“I successfully completed the ALTIS Foundation Course today, which I have to say completely exceeded my expectations. So much great content, from great coaches that I will be reading and watching again and again as my own coaching practice develops. Really looking forward to the journey that the athletes and I are on and how this knowledge will help direct us.”

“Don’t know anyone in the world that delivers the quality coaching content that ALTIS delivers consistently.”
Jorge Carvajal | Elite Performance Coach/Consultant
“This is a great online source for coaches at every level. A scientific approach that takes you from the early stages and beyond. For those interested in the science behind all phases of performance and not just strength and conditioning. I encourage you to definitely add this to your continuing education program. I personally enjoyed the content from external videos, journals, and additional readings to help tie in the global thoughts from well respected coaches in the community. The fact you get quizzes after each section helps affirm the knowledge and challenges you to critically think and apply the information covered. I look forward to the next phase!”
Paul Beckwith | Director of Sports Performance at APEX Athletics, USA
“The ALTIS Foundation Course exceeded my expectations. I was naturally skeptical about whether the course would provide beneficial content. It is comical to see the amount of certifications that exist nowadays, as well as the quality of the material included in those programs. What I enjoyed most about the course was the videos included in each module, the in depth explanations of the material covered in each section, as well as the additional reading that was placed at the bottom of each section. Since beginning the course, I have nagged my friends in the field to stop wasting money on certifications that will provide meaningless letters behind their name, and purchase content such as this. You knocked it out of the park with this course. Thank you! On to the Short Sprints Course…”
