NC/J Coaches Certification

Level 100 Certification

The first step in the education for any coach of nordic ski jumping, the Level 100 coach acquires knowledge in the fundamentals of ski jumping and learns how to teach these skills in appropriate progressions. The Level 100 coach also will have training in First Aid and CPR.

It is recommended that a ski jumping coach pursue their Level 100 certification prior to or within their first year of coaching. The knowledge gained during the Level 100 are a necessary foundation for a ski coach of any level of experience. The USSA recommends that all ski coaches work to obtain Level 100 certification, whether working part-time with young introductory level jumpers or full-time with racers at the top levels nationally. The USSA and USA Ski Jumping will deliver Level 100 Ski Jumping courses in-person at various locations, Level 100 candidates should attend this course prior to or after the Level 100 online course, but must do so prior to beginning the Level 200.

Level 100 certification requirements:

  1. Enroll for the Level 100 Ski Jumping online course - review the Level 100 Ski Jumping Coaches Manual (delivered via electronic copy via the course) and complete the exam
  2. Hold current First Aid and CPR certification (must email or fax copies of certificates/cards to USSA Sport Education at or 435.940.2790, include your USSA number)

NOTE: Coaches of Nordic Combined should also take the Level 100 Cross Country course and complete Level 100 cross country certification.
