					DRAFT Canadian Cycling Association: NCCP Equivalency and Program Guide - January 2009

The National Coaching Certification Program is in transition to a new NCCP model. As a result, both multi-sport (formerly
known as Theory) and cycling NCCP programs (formerly known as Technical) are changing. This guide explains how coaches
who have completed some elements of the former system can progress to NCCP Trained status in the new system.

This applies to coaches who have completed Cycling Technical courses since January 1, 2004. Coaches who completed
Cycling Technical courses before this date, but did not complete Certification, will be required to either re-train in the new
program of their choice or challenge for Certification through the new Evaluation process. (All coaches are eligible to challenge
for Certification in the new program.)

For more information on the NCCP transition, please visit www.coach.ca/eng/certification/nccp_for_coaches/index.cfm

The first chart shows requirements for the previous (“old”) system:
