The 1st4sport Level 1 Award in Coaching Weight Lifting will be delivered
by an accredited British Weight Lifting tutor. It will be split into the
following phases:

The 1st4sport Level 1 Award in Coaching Weight Lifting (RQF) comprises
seven units of assessment of which four are generic knowledge-specific units
(101 – 104) and three Weight Lifting coaching-specific units (105 – 107). These
units require learners to show that they can plan and deliver coaching sessions
which meet the requirements of the Level 1 Weight Lifting Technical Syllabus.
Learners who already hold the four generic units may be able to apply for
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and/or credit accumulation and transfer at
the discretion of their recognised centre/assessor. To qualify for the
1st4sport Level 1 Award in Coaching Weight Lifting (RQF), learners must
successfully complete/have credit for all seven units.

Achievement of the qualification is normally through attendance on a
course of training and assessment. Due to the nature of this qualification and
the related learning and assessment methods the most effective way to provide a
course is via a holistic training and assessment package which enables learners
to achieve all seven units in the context of coaching Weight Lifting.
