Maintain your Professional Development Points

In order for NCCP coaches to maintain their certified status, they will be required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points. PD points can be earned through a multitude of activities that coaches already participate in, including: national and provincial sport organization conferences and workshops, eLearning modules, NCCP workshops, coach mentorship programs, and active coaching. In most cases coaches are already earning their required PD points — Maintenance of Certification Status is simply the introduction of tracking these points and recognizing coaches for their efforts.

Log into The Locker, the National Coaching Certification Program database, for an up-to-date record of your PD points using the link at right. Within The Locker, you’ll find a “Maintenance” tab on the left hand side of your Certification page. Record your active coaching using the Self-Report button.
