Maintenance of Certification

CAC recognizes the value of having certified NCCP coaches engaged in ongoing professional development. For NCCP coaches to maintain their certified status, they are required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points. PD points can be earned through national and provincial sport organization conferences and workshops, eLearning modules, NCCP workshops, coach mentorship programs and active coaching. In most cases coaches are already earning their required PD points – Maintenance of Certification status is simply the introduction of tracking these points and recognizing coaches for their efforts.
