In order for NCCP certified coaches to maintain their certified status, they will be required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points within a 5 year cycle. In most cases coaches are already earning the required PD points and it is a matter of reporting these events to earn recognition within your individual locker account.
All competition coaches participating in BC qualifiers and championships are required to maintain their active status. If you need assistance brining your locker account up to date please contact Paul Cseke – email@example.com for assistance, and to make a personalized plan.
