Things to Consider
Why choose a certified coach
The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is a government initiated program designed to give the public safe, qualified instructors at every level of sport.
With thousands of Canadian children and adults directly involved in riding lessons yearly, the stables, instructors and coaches that service these riders have a duty to provide safe, qualified and professional service.
What does it mean to be a certified coach or instructor
Certification as an instructor or coach demonstrates that the individual is professional and accountable, adhering to established standard of ethics and the Equestrian Canada Code of Conduct. You also have the reassurance that they are skilled in First Aid and safety procedures.
A certified instructor or coach also demonstrates equestrian knowledge and technical competency, as well as commitment to not only complete the rigorous testing process but to continue to maintain skills through ongoing training and education.
