Making Ethical Decisions (MED)

Making Ethical Decisions (MED):

By successfully completing the Making Ethical Decisions workshop you will be fully equipped to handle virtually any ethical situation with confidence and surety.

MED is one of the NCCP’s cornerstone workshops, and leaves coaches with no doubt as to what to do when the going gets tough.

Upon completing the MED module you’ll be able to: – Analyze a challenging situation and determine if it has moral, legal or ethical implications – Apply the NCCP Ethical Decision-Making Model to properly respond to each situation in a way that is consistent with the NCCP Code of Ethics.

  • Please note that MED is required for obtaining competition coach certification.
  • Completion and passing the online Making Ethical Decisions module (test) through the Coaches Association of Canada (CAC) is a follow-up requirement.
  • The MED course can also be completed through online homestudy, via a partner or multi-sport organization or local college (varied rates apply).
