Launched in 1970, the NCCP is a partnership between the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), and more than 60 national sport organizations. The NCCP is Canada’s recognized coach training and certification program and serves a wide range of coaches – from those who introduce beginners to sport to those working with high performance athletes.
Skate Canada’s NCCP model (revised 2015) is in direct alignment with our Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model which allows coaches to be trained and certified in a context that is specific to the level of athletes with whom they would like to work with.
Please note: Skate Canada is currently transitioning to the LTAD aligned NCCP model and will be facilitating training in both the current and revised NCCP until 2018.
To become certified, coaches must meet or exceed the expectations at the in-training, trained and certified statuses. To maintain an NCCP certified status, Skate Canada professional coaches are required to complete professional development (PD) activities and adhere to CAC’s Maintenance of Certification requirements.
