Coaches that are certified in Development 1 & High Performance 1 must maintain their certified status by acquiring Professional Development points over a 5 year period.
The Coaching Association of Canada & Hockey Canada introduced Certification Maintenance requirements nationally in January of 2014, in which a coach has 5 years to obtain a certain number of Professional Development (PD) points in order to maintain NCCP Coaching certification.
Hockey Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada have provided a framework for developing coaches and maintaining certification through participation in national and provincial sport organization conferences and workshops, eLearning modules, NCCP workshops, coach mentorship programs, and active coaching. Professional Development points can be earned through a multitude of activities that coaches already participate in. PD points are tracked by the Coaching Association of Canada and Hockey Canada.
Coaches should log into the Locker to view their NCCP profile and check the status of certification.
