The HTCP Level I program is the beginning level program, which introduces the participant to the principles of hockey training and injury and risk management.
Level 1 Expiration Date:
All HTCP Level 1 certification expiration dates will be universal. This date will be August 31st/YR and will be for a maximum of three (3) years.
As a minimum standard, participants must re-qualify by participating in a HTCP Level 1 refresher program format every three years and achieve a passing mark on the exam. Member Associations may at their discretion, extend the period of requalification within a reasonable timeframe and under normal circumstances not to exceed October 31/YR. Regardless of this extension, the universal expiry date remains August 31/YR. NOTE: If lapsed past the requalification timeframe, a participant will be considered NEW and must complete the HTCP Level 1 full course.

The minimum age in which a participant can be certified as trainer in the HTCP is 16 years of age, however, the trainer must be at least 2 years older than the team age for which they are a trainer. It is highly recommended that this age group work as an assistant trainer for one (1) year prior to being allowed to take full responsibility for a team.
(*) The Bullying, Harassment and Abuse component that is included in the HTCP is a condensed version derived from the Speak Out program. This module discusses specific topics relating to the hockey trainer, however, it is not a substitute for the “Speak Out” program course. Please contact your Branch/Division for further information on Speak Out/Respect in Sport.
