This memo is to remind all coaches active in the judo community, that as per the Coaching Association of Canada policy, any NCCP certification granted in Canada will expire on the fifth anniversary unless the coach accumulates the required Professional Development (PD) points. For details please see pages 20 and 21 of the NCCP policy:
Where do you find when your certification expires?
In the LOCKER in your profile/ certification tab you will see:
HOW TO EARN PD points?
All the PD activities must be recorded in the LOCKER.
- Self directed activities must be recorded by each coach in their own LOCKER profile page where the “self-report” button is available in the “certification” tab (see the picture above). NOTE: the annual coaching is a self directed activity worth one point per year and must be reported in the LOCKER each year. The LOCKER will not accept retroactive reporting.
- Any Nationally or Provincially/Territorially sanctioned PD activity (coaching clinic – i.e. seminars for coaches delivered by invited experts, instructor clinic – I.e. kata seminars, etc.) will be recorded in the LOCKER by a designated NCCP facilitator who has access to the LOCKER. These activities must be approved for the PD points by Judo Canada in advance of such activity being conducted. No retroactive approval will be granted.
- Any organized by the CAC (both in person or on-line) courses or seminars -i.e. the Sport Leadership Symposium are automatically reported in the LOCKER and award PD points.
- Any organized by Judo Canada NCCP activities are automatically recorded in the LOCKER and award PD points.
What if you do not have enough PD points on the date of certification expiry?
If coaches choose to remain active , then their two options to be recertified will be either to take the course again or challenge the evaluation. Judo Canada course and evaluation fees will apply as per the NCCP policy – see page 31: https://www.judocanada.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/2017August-NCCP-Policy-EN.pdf
