Check your NCCP certification status
The NCCP Database is an important tool that supports the efforts of all Canadians involved in coach education. Access to this database will provide all coaches with the opportunity to track their progress and guide their development. Go to the CAC website to view your transcripts.
The NCCP model defines a coach as:
- In training when some required training has been completed. “Training” is provided through sport-specific workshops exclusively up to the CCI context and a combination of sport-specific and non sport-specific workshops for the subsequent contexts (CCD and above).
- Trained when all required training is complete for a given context. In addition to attending workshops, coaches are required to meet some practical stage-specific requirements.
- Certified when all training and evaluation requirements have been met. Coaches competencies are evaluated on their demonstrated ability to perform within a context in areas such as program design, practice planning, performance analysis, program management, ethical coaching, support to participants during training, and support to participants in competition.
