2. To request a CC# the following information is required: name, address, date of birth, and possible time frame of the NCCP training/workshop, if applicable. A search may reveal a coach’s CC#. If a coach has duplicate CC#s then they should also make a request to merge the two files at email@example.com.
3. The CC# can be used to check your transcript by going to www.coach.ca, and clicking on “Check your NCCP certification”. On the next page enter your CC# and last name. Your transcript is proof of completion of NCCP training, evaluation, and certification.

*Workshop = NCCP training/course – a workshop is recorded on a CRF. The CRF is sent by the host to the P/TCR, or P/TSO and/or NSO and then it is sent to CAC to be entered on the NCCP Database and in turn the coach’s transcript. It takes a minimum of three months to receive an update on your NCCP transcript from the time an NCCP workshop is submitted to CAC.
