About the ITCF course

ITCF is the starting point for fencers wanting to coach. 12 months of fencing experience are the minimum knowledge required for the candidate to follow the training, which will focus on how-to-coach skills. At the end of the course, the Level 1 coach should be prepared to run group sessions for beginners.
