UIPM Coaches Certification Programme (CCP): Global cohort of elite coaches attains Level 3

UIPM News

Coaches from across the global community of Modern Pentathlon took part in a hugely productive UIPM Coaching Certification Programme (CCP) course that resembled a high-level coaching symposium.

The fourth edition of the Level 3 CCP Course was highly anticipated as it is specifically designed for senior coaches wishing to further immerse themselves in the cutting edge of elite pentathlon. This online edition from April 6-9 was the first Level 3 Course since 2022 and attracted a truly international cohort with 17 coaches from 13 countries taking part.

With UIPM Level 4 Coach Istvan Gallai (HUN) at the head of affairs, the course contained insights into the latest advancements in training methodologies and technological tools for sport evaluation and analysis, enabling coaches to further elevate their skillsets. 

Twelve speakers gave presentations on specific aspects of modern coaching, with UIPM Coaches Committee Chair Christian Roudaut also in attendance. The course was completed by two female and 15 male coaches, all of whom successfully achieved Level 3 certification. 

Instructor Gallai said: "I feel very lucky because I had an opportunity to meet online with 17 coaches from 13 countries. It was particularly interesting to engage with so many coaches of different countries, exploring how they think and what their coaching philosophy is. It was nice to see how openly all coaches spoke during the course.

“In a way, the course felt more like a high-level coaching conference. In my opinion, this kind of cooperation is very important during the current changes in our sport. I’d like to express a special thanks to all of the presenters who did such a great job.”

Christian Roudaut added: “Our aim for this fourth edition of the Level 3 course was to provide a stimulating syllabus for coaches who aspire to work at the highest levels of our sport and I can now adamantly say we achieved that — and more.

“Joining these highly experienced group of coaches and watching them exchange experiences and ideas was a reminder of the quality and energy of coaches we have in our sport. Seeing them all now progress to Level 3 is another positive sign of UIPM’s investment in coaching development. 

“I would once again encourage any coaches eager to broaden their skill set and reach a new level in their individual progression to keep their eye out for the next edition of this course.”
