maintaining certification status

NCCP coaches maintain their certified status with Professional Development (PD) points. PD points can be earned through a multitude of activities that coaches already participate in, 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 required PD points -- maintenance of Certification Status is simply the introduction of tracking these points and recognizing coaches for their efforts.
