NCCP Professional Development Policy launched January 1st 2014

The Coaching Association of Canada and its partners recognize the value of having certified NCCP coaches that are engaged in Professional Development programs which reinforce the values of lifelong learning and sharing amongst the coaching community.

This is the basis for the Professional Development policy that has come into effect January 1st 2014. You will begin to see your Professional Development activities and points tracked on your transcript in The Locker. As part of your ongoing commitment to coaching, all certified coaches will be required to maintain their certification by accumulating PD points over a set time frame.

In order to help you understand what this new policy means to you the Coaching Association of Canada has created a FAQ section on their website. For coaches in NS events like the Atlantic Coaching Symposium, Sports Center Atlantic Podium Performance Seminars, and NCCP Professional Development Modules all have PD points attached to them.
