Would it help? Sure. It's pretty basic stuff. You could teach high school athletes most of the events with what you learn (other than pole vault....and hammer throw, but that's only done in one state at the HS level anyway). It's just a general overview.
That is true.

I am finishing up my degree in Phys Ed and Exercise Science (dual major) starting at the end of January and I want to get involved in HS sports coaching when I get a job after graduation. I figure all the education will help me a lot with that and with my clients.

I still plan on running the training business but by then I will hopefully be able to streamline it to athletes (mainly HS and college) so I can work with them at nights and during breaks.

I ran track when I was younger, mainly sprints and shotput, so I have a basic idea of how to train for it, but I want more knowledge and you can't get that from just reading a book.

I went straight into the Level one, and it's one of the top educational courses I've ever taken. One of the coaches who did several hours of the course is a world-class coach of Olympic-caliber athletes. Awesome stuff.
