Additional Notes
 

  • ALL OMHA coaching qualifications moving forward (Trained & Certified) will carry an expiry date of August 31, 2020
  • Hockey Canada has not yet updated the HCR or eHockey profiles to show Coaches with ‘Certified’ status. All Coaches are currently showing as 'Trained'. They are finalizing the transfer of status between the ‘The Locker’ (CAC) and the HCR.
  • Since all coaching qualifications are essentially getting a new start-date to their qualifications, Coaches should not be under any pressure to get their qualifications renewed
  • The OMHA Coach Refresher Clinic will no longer renew Coach Qualifications as it did in the past.
  • The Coach Refresher Clinic will be a Professional Development option for Coaches and will now carry a value of 3 Professional Development points in the Certification Maintenance Program
  • Development 2 is no longer considered a ‘certification’ by Hockey Canada or the CAC. These Coaches will show as D1 ‘Certified’
