Did you know that coaches can check their own coaching course transcript through THE LOCKER to determine which course need to be taken or whether they "have what it takes"?
While The Locker can be somewhat confusing at first glance it really is quite straight forward for determining the basics of which courses have been completed.

Frequently Asked Questions about "The Locker"
I don’t have an NCCP number Every coach in Canada requires an NCCP to track courses and training received. Before creating a new NCCP # be sure that you don’t already have one. If you have coached previously (any sport) that required training you likely have one whether you know it or not. Creating duplicate accounts causes problems when confirming a coach’s credentials and eligibility to coach.
You can create an NCCP # by going to the locker and clicking “Don’t have an NCCP#? Create one now!” Follow the prompts and provide your personal information. Once completed, note your NCCP # as it will be used for as long as you coach any sport.
I forgot my NCCP number You can retrieve your NCCP number by going to the locker and clicking Lookup my NCCP #. Enter your email address and your NCCP# will be emailed to you.
I can’t remember or don’t have access to the email address I used in the Locker Contact The Coaching Association of Canada or MAWA to have your email address updated in your Locker profile.
It says my password is incorrect or that I don’t have one set Contact The Coaching Association of Canada or MAWA to have your password reset in your Locker profile.
I don’t see courses I am sure that I completed previously Contact MAWA to review your transcript. While errors are not common there may a course that was missed during the entry of the data, or the course has not yet made it through the approval process. This can sometimes take longer than expected, but MAWA can confirm completion even if it doesn't appear in a coach's transcript.
Sometimes a coach will believe that they have completed a course when it wasn't for some reason, generally due to a component or online course that is required but not done. MAWA can advise the cause and possible solutions to your concern.
What does “In Training” mean? In Training means that while you have completed “part” of your training for your chosen coaching path, not all of the “required” courses have been completed yet. This could be an online course, such as Making Head Way, or a post-workshop requirement such as the Make Ethical Decisions Online Evaluation. Contact MAWA to determine what is missing from your training.
What does “Trained” mean? Trained refers to a coach who has completed all of the requirements to be eligible to coach in that sport/stream. For coaches in the Community stream “Trained” is currently the highest level of qualification.
What does “Certified” mean? Certified refers to a coach who has completed all of the requirements to be eligible to coach in that sport/stream and has also successfully applied for, and received a coaching evaluation from a Trained Coach Evaluator. While becoming “Certified” is not a requirement at this time, MAWA encourages all coaches to pursue this which confirms a coach’s competency at their chosen level. Certified status is not available at the Community Sport Initiation level.
