In order to maintain a coaching license through USA Cycling, each coach is required to complete 40 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) over a two-year cycle. Coaches must submit a CEU Report Form for recertification every two (2) years, which is based on the first year the coach earned a coaching license. CEU Report Forms will only be accepted at the time of your coaching license renewal. Coaches are responsible for tracking and recording their CEUs, USA Cycling is not responsible for tracking individual coaches CEUs.
CEU Provider Program
The goal of the CEU Provider program is to provide USA Cycling coaches with quality education to coach cyclists. Each provider listed below has submitted an application and been approved by the USA Cycling Coaching Education Department to offer valuable CEUs. Any CEU not listed below has not been approved and will not count toward the 40 CEUs. If you know of a company or organization who should apply for our CEU Provider Program, please refer them to our Seal of Approval Form or contact the Continuing Education Department email@example.com.
As a coach, it is your responsibility to obtain at least 40 CEUs every two years in order to renew your coaching license. Coaches who meet the 40 CEU requirements through continuing education, will receive a “with distinction” as noted on the FIND A COACH page. CEUs gained while a coaches license is inactive or suspended will not count towards the 40 CEU requirement. CEUs will only be accepted if achieved with an active coaching license. Continuing education does NOT include the daily activities of a coach such as attending training, leading training rides, meeting with athletes, etc.
Coaches who are unable to meet the 40 CEU requirements will have to pay the CEU recertification fee and/or retake the exam, dependent on the coach’s level of certification. Please see the chart below to determine your CEU recertification and if you need to retake the test. To pay the recertification fee, log on to your USA Cycling account, click on “Account”, then click on “Coaching Links (including tests)” and the corresponding recertification fee. If the link does not appear, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Webinars can play an integral part in a coach's education and provide valuable CEUs. USA Cycling is committed to consistently providing new and innovative educational opportunities for our coaches, therefore we will be providing live webinars 2-3 times per month.
