    Let's say you're interested in getting a certification.

    No. The Level 1 is not a prerequisite for going to a Level 2 Seminar. Did you read this?

    It goes into some detail about what you need to do become a Starting Strength Coach.

    Thanks, Tom. Really weird question just out of curiosity... Are there SS coaches who prefer high-bar squats over low-bar squats?

    Not many. Those that do probably do not have a a great interest in identifying themselves as Starting Strength Coaches. A competent coach will identify people whose shoulders cannot accommodate the low bar position and move to the next best version of the squat - high bar. However, becoming a Starting Strength Coach usually selects for people that agree with Rip's arguments and analysis regarding training. Folks change their minds over time, but most who went to the trouble of earning the certificate tend to prefer the low bar squat.
