Coaching Certification Requirements
Volleyball Canada maintains NCCP coaching certification standards for all club National Championships. Head coaches participating at Volleyball Canada National Championships must be NCCP certified.
13U - Level 1 NCCP Certified
14U - Level 1 NCCP Certified
15U - Level 1 NCCP Certified
16U - Level 1 NCCP Certified
17U - Level 2 NCCP Certified
18U - Level 2 NCCP Certified
21U - Level 2 NCCP Certified
In some circumstances coaches may have difficulty obtaining the necessary certification prior to the commencement of a Championship. In such cases it may be possible to obtain a certification exemption card. Application for an exemption card needs to be made to your provincial/territorial volleyball association.
Each province/territory may also have their own certification requirements for provincial competitions.
For more information on certification requirements for National Championships and the verification process consult the most recent Volleyball Competition Guide.
The Nova Scotia Department of Health Promotion and Protection is responsible for and offers the multi-sport theory components of the NCCP coaching certification program. For more information on the theory courses offered by the Nova Scotia Department of Health Promotion and Protection, please visit their website and go to Courses and Training.
Checking your NCCP Certification Status
Don't know what coaching certification you have or maybe you want to check your certification progress? You can check your certification records on line via the NCCP Certification Database. In the database you will be able to view and update your personal information, view your coaching records and print a certification transcript.
Make Ethical Decisions On Line Evaluation
As part of volleyball's NCCP all coaches are required to have completed the Make Ethical Decisions On Line Evaluation. This on line evaluation needs to be completed as part of the Make Ethical Decisions multi sport module, but coaches who obtained certification in the old NCCP Theory program (Theory 1, Theory 2, Theory 3) are also required to complete this evaluation.
The Make Ethical Decisions On Line Evaluation module can be accessed here.
Before you begin the module be aware of the following:
- You need to have a CC number and an active account with the NCCP Database.
- As this is the initial public launch of this application, there are no fees associated with this online evaluation. Our goal is to provide coaches with affordable training and evaluation, and any future costs associated with online training and evaluation will be minimal.
- The application will only allow you two attempts to successfully complete the evaluation. If both attempts are unsuccessful, you will be required to participate in a Make Ethical Decisions module in order to access the online evaluation for another two attempts.
- Once you have successfully completed the online evaluation, your file on the NCCP Database will be automatically updated. To view your transcript online, please visit the Coaching Association of Canada site choose the appropriate link (Comp-Int MED) and login using the same username and password you used to access the online evaluation.
