Certification Maintenance

Hockey Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada have provided a framework for developing coaches and maintaining certification through participation in national and provincial sport organization conferences and workshops, eLearning modules, NCCP workshops, coach mentorship programs, and active coaching. Professional Development points can be earned through a multitude of activities that coaches already participate in. PD points are tracked by the Coaching Association of Canada and Hockey Canada.
