USA Cycling Continuing Education Policy 2014-2015


USA Cycling’s Coaching Education Mission is to Enhance coaches abilities through excellence in education, opportunities, tools, and technology.  The purpose of our continuing education program is to support this mission and provide USA Cycling coaches with the most up to date knowledge and skills related to being a cycling coach.

Program Overview

In order to maintain a coaching license through USA Cycling, each coach is required to complete 40 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) over a two-year cycle.  Coaches must submit a CEU Report Form for recertification every two (2) years, which is based on the first year the coach earned a coaching license. CEU Report Forms will only be accepted at the time of your coaching license renewal. Coaches are responsible for tracking and recording their CEUs, USA Cycling is not responsible for tracking individual coaches CEUs.

***CEU Provider Program***
The goal of the CEU Provider program is to provide USA Cycling coaches with quality education to coach cyclists. Each provider listed below has submitted an application and been approved by the USA Cycling Coaching Education Department to offer valuable CEUs. Any CEU not listed below has not been approved and will not count toward the 40 CEUs. (We understand this is a transition year and CEUs from the 2013 program will be honored. Please click here to view the 2013 CEU approved list.)  If you know of a company who should apply for our CEU Provider Program, please refer them to our Seal of Approval Form or contact the Continuing Education Department at

As a coach, it is your responsibility to obtain at least 40 CEUs every two years in order to renew your coaching license. Coaches who meet the 40 CEU requirements through continuing education, will receive a “with distinction” as noted on the FIND A COACH page. CEUs gained while a coaches license is inactive or suspended will not count towards the 40 CEU requirement. CEUs will only be accepted if achieved with an active coaching license. Continuing education does NOT include the daily activities of a coach such as attending training, leading training rides, meeting with athletes, etc.
Coaches who are unable to meet the 40 CEU requirements will have to pay the CEU recertification fee and/or re-take the exam, dependent on the coach’s level of certification. Please see the chart below to determine your CEU recertification and if you need to retake the test. To pay the recertification fee, log on to your USA Cycling account, click on “Account”, then click on “Coaching Links (including tests)” and the corresponding recertification fee.  If the link does not appear, please email
