How Does the Training Work?

  1. The training is delivered through a 2.5-hour online training course divided into 8 separate modules.
  2. The training course can be completed in one or multiple sittings from a computer, tablet, or smartphone with access to the internet.*
  3. Once all 8 modules are completed, users will input their National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) ID number and birthdate prior to starting the multiple choice knowledge validation test to facilitate the awarding of 3 NCCP professional development (PD) points towards maintenance of certification.
  4. In addition to the NCCP PD points, a certificate of completion is made available for download immediately once the user has successfully completed the knowledge validation test.
