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 within 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.
The Coaches Association of Canada recognizes coaches who are actively coaching with one Professional Development point per year toward their Maintenance of Certification.
Declaring that you are actively coaching is easy. Log in to The Locker, go to your transcript and click the "self-report" whistle icon on the left side of the screen to "Record Active Status."
