Accessing VEX PD+ for Coaches

Each VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) and VEX IQ Robotics Competition (VIQRC) registered team is provided a Coach Key for accessing VEX Professional Development Plus (VEX PD+).

Finding Your Team's Coach Key

To find your team’s Coach Key, go to


Select “Login” on the Robot Events page.

Once logged in, you will see your profile information, and the VEX PD+ offerings. Because no licenses are activated, a lock icon will appear next to each option. Note that Intro Courses include free courses and will remain unlocked.

After activating a key, your licenses will be displayed with the type and expiration date of the license. Your type of license is determined by the team registration.

If this coach key is associated with a VIQRC or VRC team, you will see "REC Foundation Coach" under your name, as shown in the image here.
