My CEP Expired, but I am still coaching the 8U age level...Do I need to do my level 2 classroom certification?  NOPE!  You can coach Mites, Mini-Mites, 8U Girls and younger on an EXPIRED CEP and won't have to move to the next level CEP unitl you skater hits the traveling level.  Even If you stopped coaching in 2009 at level 2 and now you are back coaching a younger can coach at the 8U and under on your expired Level 2 CEP.


MY LEVEL 1 IS EXPIRED or EXPIRING THIS DECEMBER, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?  You must attend a Level 2 clinic AND complete the online age-specific module for the next age level you will be coaching. EXCEPTION - Mite, Mini-Mite and 8U coaches may remain at Level 1 and coach on an expired CEP until they move to the next level.

Is my Level 2 CEP really only valid for 1 Season?  Yes...That is correct.  Example - If you upgraded to Level 2 in December 2016, your CEP is only good through the end of that 2016 season.  If you coach again the next season (2016-17, you are required to upgrade to Level 3 before Dec 31st 2017.

You DO NOT need to take the online age specific module if you are coaching at the same level and completed it last year. Online modules for each level only need to be completed ONCE.

I am coaching Squirts for the first time and also helping as an assistant for a Mite team for the first time.  Do I have to take BOTH online Modules for each level?  YES….You are required to do the online age specific module for each level you are coaching, unless you completed that levels online module last year.

MY LEVEL 3 IS EXPIRED or EXPIRING THIS DECEMBER, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?  You must complete the online Level 3 re-certification (You can do this twice) or attend a Level 4 clinic. You can no longer attend another Level 3 clinic to recertify your Level 3 certification.
