I have completed non-LTA/overseas qualifications; how do I join LTA Accreditation?
The LTA aims to welcome coaches with external qualifications or from abroad who have completed similar levels of quality coach training. If you have an external qualification and would like to either join the qualification pathway or become a member of LTA Coach Accreditation (our professional coach membership scheme), below is some information on how you can make that happen.
- If your qualification is three days or more of tutor contact and includes an assessment, you are eligible to become Accredited. If you wish to then join the LTA Coach Qualification Pathway, you will need to complete the 1st4sport Level 1 Coaching Assistant Qualification.
- If your qualification is fifteen days or more of tutor contact and includes an assessment, you are eligible to apply for an assessment on the 1st4sport Level 3 Certificate in Coaching Tennis. You would then be able to apply online to become Accredited+.
Coaches who are interested in becoming LTA Accredited, or joining the LTA qualification pathway, can submit their formal qualifications to us by completing the form here.
You will need to demonstrate evidence of your training which should include copies of your coaching qualification certificate(s), supported by a letter from the Coach Education Department of your National Association or Federation confirming the length of the qualification and the number of tutor contact hours. Please note this must be sent in English.
