Trained Status vs. Certified Status

The NCCP distinguishes between "trained" and "certified" status. Understanding this distinction is important for hockey coaches. The combination of the level you coach and the position you hold determines if you are required to be trained or certified.

The primary distinction between these two statuses is as follows:
• Certified status requires a coach to attend a specific NCCP clinic and then be evaluated on their demonstated ability to perform within their choosen coaching context.
• Trained status, howevr, does not require evaluation. The coach must only attend the specific NCCP clinic.
Development 1 and High Performance 1 are the two coaching contexts in HEO that have a certification path and for both the evaluation component is based on a written assignment and practical, field assessment.

NCCP Coaches are described as being one of the following:
In Training - while you are completing the training components
Trained - once you have completed all the training components
Certified - once you have completed all the training and evaluation components
