Manitoba Amateur Wrestling Association (MAWA) is committed to providing a safe healthy environment for all its members and more specifically for the youth in our program. In addition to the NCCP wrestling specific training requirements for coaches, we also require all coaches, officials, staff and volunteers to complete the following screening and training.
enhanced police information check (E-PIC)
Manitoba Amateur Wrestling Association (MAWA) has joined Wrestling Canada Lutte and the Coaching Association of Canada to partner with Sterling Talent Solutions. Sterling Talent Solutions provides an online, secure, and convenient way to obtain an Enhanced Policy Information Check (E-PIC). Their results are forgery-proof which gives confidence to the organization that results have not been tampered with. The results are back in one business day, allowing people to be placed almost immediately. Additionally, people can share their results securely with other organizations where they work or volunteer with 24/7/365 access through their software. The cost per check is $25. While some police services may charge less, we believe the benefits outweigh the additional cost (reduced travel costs, less time off work required, speed, security).
How It Works The E-PIC process would be as follows: 1. Individuals are directed to a landing page: https://www.sterlingtalentsolutions.ca/landingpages/w/wrestling-canada-lutte/ 2. Individuals click the link, provide information on the site securely, verify ID. 3. 90% of candidates verify their ID online successfully. The 10% that are unsuccessful will be asked to proceed with traditional ID verification at any Canada Post office. This process is the same as they would do at a police station, but should be more convenient since there are many more locations. 4. Upon completion, please be sure to share your results with “Manitoba Amateur Wrestling Association”. 5. That’s it! Results will be returned to the individual, guaranteed within one (1) business day.
