Coaching Association of Canada

Make Ethical Decisions

By successfully completing the Make Ethical Decisions (MED) training, coaches will be fully equipped to handle ethical situations with confidence and surety. MED training helps coaches identify the legal, ethical, and moral implications of difficult situations that present themselves in the world of team and individual sport.

MED training is a cornerstone of the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), and leaves coaches with no doubt as to what to do when the going gets tough.

WHO NEEEDS THIS TRAINING?

Successful completion of the MED online evaluation is necessary for certification in any new NCCP program. MED training is not necessary to take the evaluation or to achieve certification, however, in certain programs it can lead to ‘trained’ status. Therefore, any coach wishing to attain ‘trained’ status should investigate taking MED training.

Once you have completed the MED training, and it appears on your transcript, you will have unlimited attempts at the MED evaluation. If you choose to proceed directly to the MED evaluation without taking any training, please note the following (as of April 1, 2014):

  1. A fee of $85 will apply.
  2. You will have 2 attempts at passing the evaluation. If, after 2 attempts, you have not received a passing grade of 75%, you will need to sign up for MED training.

2) HOME-STUDY:

Some provinces/territories offer MED through home study. Please contact your local Provincial/Territorial Coaching Representative for more information.

3) VIRTUAL TRAINING:

The Coaches Centre

The CAC and the provincial/territorial delivery agencies are working with The Coaches Centre (TCC) to make the Make Ethical Decisions training available through an exciting online learning environment. Coaches will be able to join this state-of-the-art virtual education centre and learn from the comfort of their own home. 

Coaches will step into a real campus community without leaving their favourite chair...and without compromising any of the in-person learning experiences they'd receive in a classroom setting.  A live Learning Facilitator (LF) will lead the online training while real-time access to other students all across Canada will provide an unparalleled opportunity to share experiences and knowledge.

There are currently no virtual courses scheduled. Please check back soon for upcoming dates.
