Coach Certification in Weightlifting

As part of the CWFHC’s commitment to advancing coach training and competency, we are proud to announce the new “competency-based” format for coach certification in weightlifting. This new format replaces the old NCCP model, which ranked coaches in levels from 1 through 5. The new coach certification levels for weightlifting are:

Club Coach / Provincial Coach / High Performance Coach

The advantage of the new format is that it recognizes excellence at each level of coaching. For example, although one coach may excel at working with international calibre athletes, she or he may not have the skills to coach beginner or intermediate athletes. As a result, the new format recognizes and promotes excellence at each level of coaching specialization.

Another improved feature of the “competency-based” format is that it requires each coach to satisfy practical requirements in both the training and competition environments (Evaluation). Although the standards differ between levels, Performance and High Performance certification levels additionally require the weightlifting coach to have a documented history of athletes at higher levels of performance.
