Continuing Education Opportunities

Registered Coach Status will disappear by the end of 2024


NCCP Certification:

If you have Registered Coach Status (or no Coach Status) and plan to continue coaching, we recommend that you start taking steps NOW to become EC Certified. An EC Certified Coach's training plan includes being evaluated for Level 6 (English Instructor); Level 4 (Western Instructor) or Level 8 (English Competition Coach and Competition Coach Specialist); Level 4 & Basic Training (Western Competition Coach) Rider Levels.

Individual Rider Level evaluations and challenges for English and Western Levels for those working towards Instructor or Competition Coach may be held throughout the year without waiting for an MHC-organized event. A private arena must meet MHC's size standard for a jumping or dressage course; evaluators and paperwork are managed through the MHC office for an administration fee. Please email [email protected] for details.

Online Courses

Remember, as a Certified Equestrian Canada coach your PD points should come 50% from clinics, volunteering and other professional activities; the other 50% should come from NCCP courses. Coaches who have Coach Status without EC Certification are not required to maintain PD points.
