The analogues of Whitehead’s theorem in coarse shape theory, i.e., in the pointed coarse pro-category pro*-$\mathrm{HPol}_0$ and in the pointed coarse shape category $Sh^*_0$, are proved. In other words, if a pointed coarse shape morphism of finite shape dimensional spaces induces isomorphisms (epimorphism, in the top dimension) of the corresponding coarse $k$-dimensional homotopy pro-groups, then it is a pointed coarse shape isomorphism.
