Professional Development

Coaches, like other professionals, value lifelong learning and continuous improvement.

Maintenance of Certification is Effective January 1, 2014

The NCCP requires all coaches to enhance their coaching ability by taking both NCCP Professional Development, as well as non-NCCP workshops and courses.  A specfic number of PD credits must be accumulated - based on sport and context for a coach to maintain certification.

Please refer to the Coaching Association of Canada FAQ web page for more information.

The Coaching Association of Canada has developed a number of NCCP PD workshops:

Aboriginal Coach Module (ACM)

Empower +

Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) - Coach PD 

Resistance Training 

Host a NCCP - PD Workshop (FMS, ACM, etc)

In Alberta, communities, schools, colleges, universities and recreation departments may host any of the above PD Workshops.
