Mike … you don’t need to have gone through NTP to be a NTP mentor.
You would not be the first person to be a NTP mentor in their second year of doing triathlon. Every year there are a few NTPers from the prior year coming back to be a mentor to the new class. You’ll also see a lot regular veteran club members serving as mentors who have never gone through the program.
