Required for ALL Coaches

The Connecticut Coaching Education Program (CCEP) which is an alliance of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), the Connecticut Association of Athletic Directors (CAAD) and the Connecticut High School Coaches Association CHSCA, is offering modules that will earn hours towards completing Connecticut's coaching CEU requirements.

These modules are 3 hours in length and are designed around the Connecticut Department of Education Coaching Competencies and will, when accumulated, satisfy the SDE 15 hours needed within every five (5) years to coach in Connecticut public schools.

For more information about the CCEP and a list of the Module Offerings please click here.

Each module focuses on areas of coaching competency that are essential to school coaches in the twenty-first century. The CCEP has developed a delivery system that is designed to provide great flexibility for coaches whose time commitments are extensive. A variety of offerings will be provided throughout the year. Expert instructors will provide new and experienced coaches with interesting, timely and functional learning opportunities to assist them to better serve their athletes and schools.

The Coaching CEU Regulation
A coaching permit shall be valid from the effective date and shall be renewable every five years upon completion of not less than 15 clock hours of seminars, course work or workshops which provide information on safe and healthful coaching practices and understanding child and adolescent development, as approved by the Department of Education. Upon the written request of an employing agent, the Department, for good cause shown, may defer the 15 clock hour requirement for 12 months.
