The Level 2 Cyclo-Cross Coaching Award is a two-day course aimed at coaches new to cyclo-cross coaching who have gained coaching experience from the Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Cycling, and for existing cyclo-cross coaches wishing to develop their existing knowledge.

The course covers a wide variety of topics including:
- Creating a cyclo-cross coaching environment.
- Developing technical knowledge of cyclo-cross techniques.
- Improving technical performance of riders.
- Advising riders on bike set-up.
- Progressing technical performance.
Coaches are assessed through a 15 minute coaching session delivered on day two of the course, followed by the completion of an assessment workbook and the delivery of six one hour cyclo-cross specific coaching sessions post course.
