Gary Chapman of Protrain is the first karting coach having qualified on the MSA’s new accredited coaching qualification.
The MSA Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Motorsport in Performance has been over three years in the making and is designed to set the standard for coaching in motor sport. It was first piloted successfully in December 2013, when the first 10 Level 2 motor sport coaches qualified successfully.
The accreditation is listed on the Qualifications and Credit Framework, which sits within OFQUAL – a non-ministerial government department that regulates qualifications, exams and tests. The awarding body is 1st4Sport, which works with the governing bodies of many other sports including football, gymnastics, rugby and tennis.
Gary will be educating all the Protrain Instructors on the techniques learnt during the qualification to maintain Protrain's acknowledged leadership in kart driver training and further enhance the training that we carry out.
