What do you get when you transform our comprehensive, online coach certification courses into a weekly-dripped structured format, and add ten LIVE (via Zoom) weekly Q&A sessions with Expert Presenters like Jason Koop and Nell Rojas?  You get the UESCA Advantage Certifications!

The Advantage certifications are perfect for those wanting a structured learning process to effectively stay on track and stay accountable, plus enjoy live (via Zoom) interaction on a weekly basis to discuss the course content and get every question answered.

We’ll keep you on track to complete the certification in 10 weeks (you are able to then take the final exam when you’re ready)!

Plus Bonus Time with your Presenter – After the ten weeks, you will continue to have access to Jason Koop (Ultrarunning) or Nell Rojas (Running) to ask questions for an additional 30 days.
