Maintenance of Certification is the NCCP policy that requires NCCP coaches to maintain their certification through Professional Development and training opportunities over a predetermined period.

The number of required PD points does vary from sport to sport or from context to context. Download this overview of the PD requirements by sport.

The NCCP Maintenance of Certification and Professional Development policy:

  • provides coaches with credit for attending PD opportunities
  • promotes upgrading and maintaining relevancy to coaching practices

Not Renewed status

Certified (Transferred) Not Renewed

A coach who does not complete the required PD credits by the expiry date of their maintenance cycle should will have the status of 'Not Renewed'. For their certification to be in good standing, the coach must complete the required PD points within their maintenance cycle.
