Transfer of Qualifications is the NCCP policy that transfer Levels 1, Level 2 and Level 3 coaches' qualifications to the competency-based programs of the current NCCP. 

Transfer of Qualifications does vary from sport to sport, to reflect the scope of sport-specific differences between Levels-NCCP and the competency-based programs of the current NCCP. 

The NCCP Transfer of Qualifications and Make Ethical Decisions (MED) policy:

  • All coaches whose Levels-NCCP qualifications are transferred to the current NCCP must complete MED within five years of the transfer taking effect.
  • Coaches who are granted Trained (Transferred) status must complete, as a minimum, MED Training.
  • Coaches who are granted Certified (Transferred) status must complete MED Online Evaluation.

A Certified (Transferred) coach who does not complete MED Online Evaluation within five years of the transfer taking effect will have the status of 'Not-Renewed: MED Online Evaluation'.

For their certification to be in good standing, the coach must complete MED Online Evaluation. Once this happens, the status of “Not-Renewed: MED Online Evaluation” will be removed immediately.
