TRANSFER OF QUALIFICATIONS FROM LEVELS TO NEW NCCP
As the transition of the Levels NCCP to the new NCCP occurs, the Coaching Association of Canada requires all sports establish transfer rules from the old system to the new system. To coincide with the implementation of Professional Development, the five-year countdown discussed below will begin January 1, 2014. The date these rules will be applied in the locker has not yet been established. Until the changes are reflected in the Locker, we encourage you to use this document to guide you in your coach training.
