Database and Certification

All coach, instructor and leader programmes recognised under the Coaching Development Programme for Ireland (CDPI) must be registered on the Sport Ireland Coaching Database prior to their delivery. This must be done each time the programme is due to be delivered in line with Sport Ireland Quality Assurance policies and procedures.

Learners who successfully complete all elements of a CDPI programme will receive a Sport Ireland Coaching certificate. For certificates to be issued, learner details must be submitted to Sport Ireland Coaching following the programme.

The procedure for registering programmes and certifying coaches are outlined here. For further details please contact Sport Ireland Coaching at
