ONLINE LEVEL 1 COURSE
The Online Level 1 Course is a temporary offering developed in response to global constraints on in-person gatherings related to COVID-19. This offering provides an option for those who need to revalidate or maintain their CrossFit trainer credentials. It is also currently available worldwide to those seeking CrossFit’s Level 1 credential for the first time.
The course REQUIRES two components:
- A self-paced online course that can be completed at home. The course begins with lecture-based and interactive instruction on the fundamental principles and movements of CrossFit and ends with a 50-question multiple-choice test.
- A live webinar, where participants can engage in a Q&A with CrossFit’s top coaches and receive coaching through foundational movements in a small group setting.
Upon completion of the course, participants are able to revalidate current CF- L1 or CF-L2 credentials, obtain a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Online (CF-OL1) credential (valid for three years, eligibility requirements apply), or attain CEUs toward the maintenance of CF-L3 or CF-L4 credentials.
