Maintenance of Certification recognizes and tracks coach education. It is something we’re proud our coaches are already doing and we want to recognize them for their commitment to coaching education.
The Coaching Association of Canada and its partners, we recognize the value of having certified NCCP coaches that are engaged in Professional Development programs which reinforce the values of lifelong learning and sharing amongst the coaching community.
In order for certified NCCP coaches to maintain their certification, they will be required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points. PD points can be earned through a multitude of activities that certified coaches already participate in, including: national and provincial sport organization conferences and workshops, eLearning modules, NCCP workshops, coach mentorship programs, and active coaching. In most cases, certified coaches are already earning their required PD points -- Maintenance of Certification is simply the introduction of tracking these points and recognizing coaches for their efforts.
