NCCP Home Study Program

The NCCP home study program is designed for coaches unable to attend an in-class course due to location, work or coaching schedule. 

Once registering you will receive an e-mail with instructions to download the electronic coach workbook as well as the name and contact information for an accredited NCCP Learning Facilitator that has been assigned as your tutor. You will then complete a series of exercises in the workbook and submit it by email for marking to your assigned Learning Facilitator.

The length of time to complete a home study course varies by module and your individual learning style. The format relies heavily on self-directed learning and the number of hours may be more than what is required of coaches attending an in-class course. Coaches must complete their course workbook within the 3 month deadline.
