The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) in Judo is the result of a partnership between Judo Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada. This program enables participants to learn both, in a classroom setting and on the mat, what it means to be a coach/instructor in judo. The NCCP is the recognized national standard for coaching judo in Canada.
In 2010 the Coaching Certification program in Canada changed from “level system” to a “competency education and training system”
What is new and how did it affect coaches certified in the old standard?
If your certification in the current NCCP system was transferred from the old Levels system, and you have never completed the Make Ethical Decisions (MED) online evaluation, you may renew your certification in one step – take the MED online evaluation. For example: If you were certified Level 2 Certified NCCP coach and your certification was transferred to the current system in May 2015, your maintenance cycle would be January 1st 2016 – January 1st 2021. If you have never completed the MED online evaluation it should be completed it before January 1st 2021. Once you do so, your maintenance cycle will restart.
HOW TO EARN PD points?
All the PD activities must be recorded in the Locker.
What happens if you do not have enough PD points on the date of certification expiry?
If coaches do NOT meet the requirements for a “re-certification, their status in the Locker will show “not renewed”. If such coach chooses to remain active, then they will have the following options to become “Certified” again:
Challenge the evaluation for a given coaching context: Judo Canada course and evaluation fees will apply as per the NCCP policy – see page 31
