Online Coaching Certificate Overview
Many colleges tout their online classes, but the majority do not offer a completely online education. At Linfield College Online and Continuing Education, we believe access to furthering your passions should be affordable and easily attainable. All of our classes for a coaching certificate can be obtained online, giving you the freedom to move forward without disruptions.
Employment Opportunities in Coaching
Those who work in the field of coaching, whether professionally or as a volunteer in an extracurricular capacity, are met with some unique challenges. It can be difficult to manage expectations from both parents and players while maintaining league qualifications. Additionally, there are many physical fitness aspects to coaching that should be addressed. All of these parts of the puzzle fit together through our online coaching certificate classes. With this continuing education certificate, graduates will be able to take on jobs as an athletic coach within a variety of sports.
Who Should Enroll
We suggest that all Linfield College students work with an academic advisor to ensure that they are pursuing the right path for their chosen profession. Some students work from several programs at once to fulfill their desired education requirements, while others are just looking for a higher education course that will further solidify their already established place within their field.
