About the NCCP

NCCP Dojo Assistant Course


NCCP stands for the National Coaching Certification Program and is a nationally recognized and run coaching education and development system. There are both general coaching and sport-specific courses required for certification and professional development.  Judo has a sport-specific program designed to help coaches assist in the dojo and progress up to high-performance coaching at the national and international levels.

Maintaining Your Certification

The Coaching Association of Canada and its partners recognize the value of having certified NCCP coaches that are engaged in Professional Development programs that reinforce the values of lifelong learning and sharing amongst the coaching community.


In order for certified NCCP coaches to maintain their certification, they will be required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points. PD points can be earned through a multitude of activities that certified coaches already participate in, including national and provincial sport organization conferences and workshops, eLearning modules, NCCP workshops, coach mentorship programs, and active coaching. In most cases, certified coaches are already earning their required PD points -- Maintenance of Certification is simply the introduction of tracking these points and recognizing coaches for their efforts.


Visit www.coach.ca and log into the Locker for an up-to-date record of your PD points. For examples of opportunities to accumulate PD points, check out these pages, and if you still have questions, check out the FAQs!
