Within the Competition Development certification status, there is a requirement to accumulate 30 PD points to retain the certification status and 20 points for the Introduction to Competition status. These points need to be accumulated over a five (5) year period. Here is a list of opportunities that can be obtained to maintain certification:
Making Ethical Decisions (MED) – this is now a requirement for all coaches, if it is not already completed. This module can be found within your Locker profile, under the e-learning tab.
This evaluation is free for coaches who have already completed the MED Training. If you have not completed the training, the cost for this course is $85. More information can be found here.
There are other e-learning options within your Locker profile that will allow you to earn points. Some are free of charge, and others will come with a fee.
Managing Conflict Online Evaluation ($85)
NCCP Emergency Action Plan (free)
NCCP Sport Nutrition ($20)
Making Headway (fee)
Other multi-sport workshops that may be of benefit to your work within cycling can be found through the CAC website.
Cycling Canada will also be providing PD opportunities throughout the year, which will be communicated and posted on our website as soon as a schedule and content have been determined.
Self Reporting within your Locker profile is also accepted (Ex: report 1 PD point/year for coaching)
1 PD point/year for every year in an active role
1 point for completion of the CCES anti-doping update
