Our coach accreditation scheme offers support to coaches to ensure all those taking part in the game have an enjoyable and safe experience providing a simple check on safety and professional standards.
There are two kinds of Coach Accreditation: Registration and Licensing
Both forms of accreditation mean that a coach or coaching assistant has met the following criteria:
There are two levels of coach accreditation; registration and licensing. Registration is the basic level of accreditation issued to those who are safe to practice. Licensing is the top tier of accreditation issued to those who are qualified, safe to practice and take part in regular training through continuous professional development (CPD).

There’s a whole range of benefits for accredited coaches tailored to your level of qualification.
All accredited coaches and coaching assistants are able to download and print a certificate proving their status as Licensed or Registered by the LTA. The certificate shows the dates of the accreditation period, as well as the date on which the certificate was printed. Make sure that the accreditation is still valid and that the certificate was printed recently.
