The Coaching Association of Canada has adapted the NCCP to fit todayʼs Coaching environment. Among
these important changes has been a shift in emphasis from “what a Coach knows” to “what a Coach can
do”. This transformation to a competency/outcomes-based approach has been a key factor in the redevelopment of the program. As a result, this workshop has been designed to prepare Coaches to
