Race Directors HQ, an online resource and community network for race directors, has announced a partnership with USA Triathlon that will provide Race Directors HQ members with access to USA Triathlon’s online race director certification courses at special rates.
USA Triathlon’s revamped online race director certification courses are designed for seasoned event directors as well as those that are new to the industry. The 16-hour courses address the latest in race directing methods and insurance/risk management trends, and come with additional benefits to certified race directors, which include:
- Discount on USA Triathlon sanction fees
- Eligibility to host non-owned USA Triathlon National Championships, Regional Championships and special qualifier events
- Complimentary USA Triathlon membership during each year certified
- Discounts on USA Triathlon marketing materials
- Access to the Gatorade sponsorship program
As part of the partnership, Race Directors HQ members will receive a 20% discount on all USA Triathlon race director certification courses. Furthermore, all USA Triathlon-certified race directors will get reciprocal access to Race Directors HQ’s online marketing courses, for which they will receive Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits towards their recertification.
