Transfer of Qualifications: From Old to New NCCP
In collaboration with the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), Skate Canada will complete a transfer of qualifications from old to new NCCP to align with core principles of the current NCCP-LTAD training and certification model. On September 28, 2016, the NCCP credentials in the “Levels” system up to Level 3 certification will receive a transferred NCCP status based on the following:
The achievements you have completed in the old NCCP will remain in your Locker and will dictate which status you will be transferred to based on what you have accomplished prior to September 28, 2016. Your Levels-NCCP credentials are still valid and they will not expire or be removed from your transcript. You are being awarded this equivalency so that the NCCP coaching partnership can better serve and provide you with information and opportunities that are relevant to today’s coaching demands and in today’s coaching environment.
If you are certified at Level 4 or Level 5, please note that this transfer of qualifications will take place once the Skate Canada High Performance context program is implemented. In the meantime, you will notice that we have issued the National Coach transfer in your Locker for having completed the Level 3 certification.
The CAC will also email you information to explain the transfer. If you do not receive an email from the CAC, please log-in to your Locker and make sure that your contact information is up to date.
Maintenance of Certification Requirements
As a result of the transition to the new NCCP program, the Skate Canada Continuous Education Program (CEP) has been replaced with CAC’s Maintenance of Certification requirements. All certified coaches will be subject to completing professional development (PD) activities to maintain their highest NCCP certified status. The minimum required points are as follows:
Depending on when a coach achieves a certified status, individual maintenance of certification cycles will begin the following January 1. Coaches with a transferred certified status as of September 28, 2016 will begin their cycle as of January 1, 2017 and end on December 31, 2019. Please log-in to your Locker to view your Maintenance of Certification cycle start and end date.
Please note that current Level 4/5 certified coaches will be required to meet the PD points of a National Coach.
More information on the Maintenance of Certification coming soon.
