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 registered, 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. Coaches must complete their course workbook within the 3 month deadline.

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. Most coaches find that home study courses take twice the amount of time allocated for an in-person workshop.

By enrolling in the NCCP home study program, you agree not to distribute, share, publish, transmit, modify, display or create derivative works from or exploit the contents of these copyrighted materials in any way. You must have registered and paid in full to complete the home study program.

Please note: You must complete the coach workbook and any additional documents in the same format you download them in. Many modules require Microsoft Word to complete the work. If you do not have Microsoft Word please see this home study formatting options document or email before starting the home study program. Modules marked below with a * do not require Microsoft Word.

In addition, unfortunately special requests for fast-tracking marking of home study workbooks and Locker processing cannot be accommodated. Home study tutors typically check email weekly, and mark workbooks every two weeks, with monthly processing.
