US Fencing Coaches Association Membership

One of the core benefits of membership in the Coaches Association is the opportunity to become certified, or increase your certification level. The USFCA examines and certifies coaches at the four levels recognized internationally by the Academie d'Armes International (AAI) and its member organizations. This program is supervised by the Certification and Accreditation Board, consisting of Fencing Masters elected by other member Fencing Masters. The USFCA certification program provides the fencing coach or teacher a measurement of his or her knowledge and ability through an examination process and certification program.

Certification is granted to individual coaches on four levels: Assistant Moniteur, Moniteur, Prévôt, and Fencing Master. Furthermore, the USFCA offers coaches' clinics, specialized training and continuing education.
