Maintenance of Certification

The Coaching Association of Canada and Curl BC recognize the value of having certified NCCP coaches that are engaged in Professional Development programs. This active engagement reinforces the value of lifelong learning and sharing amongst the coaching community.

In order for NCCP coaches to maintain their certified status, they will be required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points. In most cases coaches are already earning the required PD points and it is a matter of reporting these events so that coaches can be recognized for their efforts and track their progress.

PD points can be earned through a multitude of activities that coaches already participate in including:

  • Provincial and National Sport Organization conferences & workshops
  • eLearning Modules
  • NCCP Workshops
  • Coach Mentorship  Programs
  • Active Coaching *coaching at club/camp events and/or coaching a team
  • Non-NCCP Events

The number of PD points are subject to approval by the Canadian Coaching Association and Curling Canada

  • Individual Coaches can report their Non-NCCP Events through our online form: Individual PD
  • Facilities can report their Non-NCCP events for coaches to receive professional development points through our online form: Facility Events

How many PD points do I need? 

Only CERTIFIED coaches are required to collect PD points. These coaches have completed the MED, training, and evaluation process. You can accumulate more than the minimum points requirement, but they will not transfer to the next cycle. Points will be reset to zero at the start of the new 5 year cycle. * PD points are sport specific, other sports may have different amounts.

  • Club Coach Youth = No points required
  • Club Coach = No points required
  • Competition Coach = 20 PD points over 5 year cycle
  • Certified Competition Development Coach = 30 PD points over 5 year cycle
  • All Level 2 & Level 3 coaches *ensure you have transferred over to the current system

What happens if I don’t acquire enough PD points?

You will remain a certified coach but have a status of “not renewed” assigned to your certification. To renew your certification you will have to complete another on-ice evaluation and provide accompanying paperwork. Contact Kim Dennis for renewal evaluation fees.
