Passing the RRCA Certified Running Coach Exam

During the weekend of August 14th, I took the RRCA Coaching course. It was held remotely during Saturday & Sunday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m both days. It sounded like it would be a lot to be in a Zoom meeting all day both days, but honestly, it went by really fast and was very informative. We took breaks each hour or so and worked in groups several times both days. 

RRCA Exam Grade
So what was the exam like? The exam is 100 questions. Most of the questions are multiple choice, but there are some true and false mixed in. The exam is open book, but don't let that lull you into thinking it's not challenging, because it definitely is! 

The nice thing, is that you can save your progress and leave the exam and come back to it later. I took the exam 2 weeks after the course to give myself time to learn the book and where different topics where located to save time and energy as the book is very thick. There's close to 400 slides in the powerpoint so there is A LOT of infomation to sift through.
