The NCCP courses will be online for now. This covers the “theory” portion only. To be certified you must also take the “field” portion. The various zones and districts in Alberta, will be hosting the “field” portion once it is allowed by the public health authorities. However, you can get part of your NCCP training done now.

ASA has also created a little tutorial video for participants on the new process which you can view by clicking HERE
