Baseball Canada, in conjunction with the Coaching Association of Canada, have now instituted a requirement that coaches who have an NCCP "Certified" status renew that status every three years.
This process applies to coaches whose NCCP status is Provincial Certified or Regional Certified, and those coaches who had a status of Level 2 Certified or Level 1 Certified in the old NCCP and who completed the Making Ethical Decisions online evaluation prior to the June 30, 2009 deadline. This process DOES NOT apply to coaches who have an "IN TRAINING" status, such as Initiation Coach, Regional Trained, or Provincial Trained.
You can check your NCCP status by accessing your online transcript at https://thelocker.coach.ca/access/account/public, or by logging into your account at http://nccp.baseball.ca/ and switching to the Status tab.
To renew your certified status, you must accumulate 12 Professional Development points during the three year period prior to your certified status expiration date. Points can be accumulated by coaching (1 point per year), attending the annual coaching conference (3 points per year), or attending an NCCP clinic (5 points per module). There is also the provision for self-directing training activities (maximum 3 points over the 3 year period), but there is no clear information yet as to what qualifies or how to obtain the points for these.
Any coach who fails to accumulate the necessary points will need to undergo an "on field evaluation" to retain their certification; otherwise they will essentially lose the "certified" status and will revert to "trained" status, and will have to undergo the evaluation to regain the certified status.
To obtain your Professional Development points, you need to have an account on http://nccp.baseball.ca/. If your status is Provincial Certified or Regional Certified, you should already have an account which you needed to do the online component when your first started your NCCP training. If you were grandfathered from the old NCCP Level 1 Certified or Level 2 Certified, you may need to register for an account, but when doing so you need to make sure you check the "Have you already completed your Level 1 Technical in the old NCCP and wish to register with nccp.baseball.ca?" check box, which will skip having to pay for the registration and will instead notify Baseball BC who will confirm your certification and enable your new account.
Now you can log into your account at http://nccp.baseball.ca/, switching to the Status tab, and expanding the Professional Development section at the bottom of the page. Here you can click on "notify Province of completion" in the Active Coaching section to claim your point for coaching during a season, or to select a "Non NCCP (National) Clinic" to claim the 3 points for attending the BC Minor Coaching Conference.
Until they iron out the wrinkles in this process, Baseball BC may have to manually intervene in the process to ensure points get properly assigned, so for any questions or problems please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that coaches can also claim points for coaching or attending the conference in 2013, even though the initial certification period is valid through 2016 (so you essentially have 4 years to accumulate the first 12 points you need).
