We have discounted rates for this course for teams & leagues interested in certifying multiple coaches. If you are interested in a bulk order for your team or youth league, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 425-523-4030.
Will I be listed as certified on Driveline’s website or marketed in any way?
No. Coaches completing the certification will receive the designation of having completed the course but we will not market your completion. We will confirm your completion or non-completion of coursework to third parties upon proof of a coach marketing themselves as “certified” or having completed the course.
Coaches will receive a certificate after passing the final lesson
What rights do I have to use Driveline in my own marketing of my program, facility or skills?
Upon completion of the course, you will be certified in that course. We do not give permission to individuals or programs to represent they are “Driveline” (ex. “Driveline of Nevada” or “The only Driveline program in Moscow!”).
Representing your instructors as “Driveline-certified” or a variant is an appropriate designation.
