National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP)

The NCCP program is the gold standard for leadership certifications programs in Canada for all sports organizations. It is broadly recognized by National and Provincial sport governing organizations, school boards, municipal recreation departments and other organizations involved in sport and recreation. By bringing kayak leadership, instruction and coaching under the NCCP umbrella, the sport can be widely recognized across Canada.

The NCCP's Competency Based Education and Training format provides a broad new platform with a different approach to community leadership, instruction and competitive coaching. It also allows for individuals to challenge the certification process and opens the way for Paddle Canada, BCU- or ACA- certified instructors to cross over easily to the new CKC/NCCP program. This re-certification can be done in a relatively simple manner through the regular re-certification process at a weekend workshop or special teaching evaluations.
