Maintenance of NCCP Certification

What is Maintenance of Certification?

  • In order to maintain certified status, coaches are required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points. PD points can be earned through a multitude of activities in which coaches already participate, 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 PD points -- Maintenance of Certification Status is simply the introduction of tracking these points and recognizing coaches for their efforts.
  • You can log into the Locker (https://thelocker.coach.ca/home) for an up-to-date record of your PD points. Go to the “Certification” tab and select “Maintenance” on the left side.

Coaches who were certified on or prior to 1 Jan 2014 need the following "Maintenance Points" by 31 Dec 2018 to renew their certifications.

  • AI Certified - 10 points in five years
  • DC Certified - 20 points in five years
  • PC Certified - 30 points in five years

Coaches are eligible to receive two (2) Maintenance/Professional Development (PD) points for attending each PATU Coach course. To facilitate awarding coaches the PD points, please complete the PATU Coach Course – Professional Development (PD) Points form

What if I don’t maintain my certified status, what are the consequences?

  • In the Locker, your status will be “Certified – Not Renewed”.
  • You will not be eligible to coach at national events until your status returns to “Certified”.
  • You can return to “Certified” status by earning the requisite points or re-doing the evaluation.
