Lifelong learning is the ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge and is one of the underlying philosophies of the NCCP.

In June 2021, coaches with Levels-NCCP qualifications in artistic gymnastics underwent a transfer of their qualifications from the Levels NCCP to our new NCCP programming which places a renewed focus on lifelong learning.

Coaches with trampoline Levels-NCCP qualifications will transfer at a later date.

For more information on the Transfer of Qualifications, please visit here!

In order for NCCP coaches to maintain their certified status, they will be required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points. PD points can be earned through a multitude of activities that coaches already participate in, including (but not limited to): national and provincial sport organization conferences and workshops, eLearning modules, NCCP workshops, coach mentorship programs, judging, facilitating courses, working on a committee, and active coaching. The following chart shows examples of how PD Points can be obtained. For information on how to Self Roster Active Coaching and Other PD Activities use these instructions.

Gymnastics Foundations coaches must collect 10 points over a 5 year period. Competition 1 coaches must collect 20 points over a 5 year period. The number of PD Points a coach has collected can be found in the Locker under a coaches’ NCCP number.
