I've checked out Aqualogic and had some friends who enrolled but according to them, Ria Mackay is not hands on and lets her non TI coaches teach TI. I'm hearing good things about MediSwim, I follow them on Instagram and they post great case studies. my current sched is just conflicting with their current Triathlon Swim program sched but will def enroll at MediSwim.
I would suggest emailing the TI office here in the U.S. They can reliably tell you if someone is a TI certified coach. And they may also want to take action if a non-TI coach is claiming to be TI certified.
