Benefits of NCCP Certification
Being “Certified” means that you have demonstrated competency and have met professional guidelines within the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). Gymnastics NCCP education in Canada is highly regarded, and certification provides professional status. It provides the participants and their parent’s assurance that you have been evaluated within your specialty to provide safe, yet challenging programs (Gymnastics Canada, 2021).
How to Certify:
Following completion of required training, coaches must assemble their "Coaching Portfolio" and complete the discipline-specific evaluation process to become certified. A full list of "Coaching Portfolio's" for the various NCCP Levels and disciplines is available below. Completed portfolio's are submitted to GNL, who will then match you with a suitable Coach Evaluator (CE). Coach Evaluation fees depend both on the level of certification you are applying for and on who and what province your CE is affiliated with.
