E-Learning Components for Certification Courses Announced
Thursday, June 20, 2013
BC Hockey announced at the 2013 Annual General Meeting (AGM) that the Hockey Canada E-Learning system for the Hockey Canada Safety Program, Hockey Canada Officiating Program and the National Coach Certification Program will be implemented for the 2013-2014 season.
The Hockey Canada e-learning initiative, dubbed Hockey University was three (3) years in the making from the initial concept to the final product in three (3) Hockey Canada courses.  The move to e-learning is designed to assist the delivery of certification programs by providing:
  • Increased convenience to BC Hockey volunteers by reducing course time as well as the opportunity to take the e-learning components on their own schedule with reduced travel to and from courses
  • Standardization of materials assuring delivery in the same fashion to all delegates
  • Ease of updating materials and adding components based on changes happening in the hockey world
  • Increased ability for delegates to review material when they need it.
  • Ease of tracking ones progress in the programs with the immediate updating of records
Although not all program components will be affected by the move to e-learning, the following will see a drastic delivery change:
Hockey Canada Safety Program
  • Entire program is available via e-learning
  • Contains 18 modules in the course varying in length from one (1) to 18 minutes
  • Total time estimated to complete the course is four (4) hours
  • Delegate records are updated immediately on the Hockey Canada registry upon completion
  • All course resources are available on-line
Hockey Canada Officiating Program (Level 1’s and those new to officiating)
  • “Blended” course design.  Delegates must complete the e-learning course prior to attending the face to face clinic
  • Total time estimated to complete the e-learning portion is three (3) hours
  • Once delegates complete the e-learning portion, they receive access to register for a face to face clinic
  • Total time estimated to complete the face to face portion is three (3) and a half hours
  • A locally arranged ice session is mandatory for new officials
Hybrid NCCP Coach Certification (for coaches of non-carded / recreational teams)
  • “Blended” course design.  Delegates must complete the e-learning course prior to registering for the face to face clinic
  • Total time estimated to complete the e-learning portion is four (4) and a half hours
  • Once delegates complete the e-learning portion, they receive access to register for a face to face clinic
  • Total time estimated to complete the face to face clinic is nine (9) hours, which includes the BC Hockey Checking course and ice time
  • Completion gives coaches a Trained (Qualified) status which meets BC Hockey regulations for Hockey Canada non-carded teams
  • Hybrid certification requires completion of a post task by March 31 of the given season.
It is expected that the e-learning courses will be available in early July, 2013.  Course registration will be posted on the applicable program page of the BC Hockey website.  In the coming years, other course components will also be addressed by e-learning.

Two officials on one email
Tried to register my son for his first clinic. The system will only recognize me and won't engage to allow for forms and access to E-clinic. Thoughts?
Posted By: Gordon 9/5/2013 10:12:20 PM

Hi Gordon - each son will need to have his own unique email address not already being used by anyone on the HCR. Please call the office to make sure your sons are set up correctly

disappointed in the payment options that are on the site to pay for courses. I don't want to use my credit card are you kidding me what can I do.

Online Clinic- Level 2
I am a returing official, and I am going into level two this year. Do I also have to do the online modules? I've done them twice alrweady and I'm finding the website difficult to navigate to find out.

Online Clinic - Level 2
Hi Faren - You will not be required to do the online module and can sign up for any level 2 clinic in the province listed for “returning officials.” Being from Lumby, the best option for you is a clinic this Saturday (Oct. 5th) Hope that helps!

coaching sign up
I'm trying to sign up for a hybrid coaching clinic and a message pops up on the top of the screen saying I need "Hockey U"??? What? It is not a user friendly site. All I want to do is start my e-learning modules before the clinic.

Coaching Hybrid Clinic
I emailed late yesterday but am on a tight deadline, in order to reigster for the coaching clinic in Williams Lake for BC. I am wanting to be an assistant coach only. I logged on to my account and found the HU - Comm Coach Stream. I picked Midget Division as that is the level I want to assistant coach at. Cost with tax is 170.10. Is this the e- course I have to register for in order to be able to register for the coaching clinic in Williams Lake that runs next week Starting Oct. 22. I don't want my 170. bucks to go to waste. Find this site so user unfriendly!

Officiating Again
Hi Nick - To be eligible for to officiate with the PCAHA, you will need to recertify for 2014-2015. Clinics will open late August to early September. If you are under 18, the Summer Officiating Schools are the earliest clinics offered. Hope this helps! Any questions, you can always email
Posted By: BC Hockey 5/1/2014 3:33:48 PM

Okay thanks this helped. I am 15 so once I complete the course I will get my certification number? And I was hoping to ref this summer for summer leagues, so would there be any courses to take in May or June? Thank you for your help much appreciated!!
Posted By: Nick 5/1/2014 7:37:07 PM

Hi Nick - Once the course is completed, you will receive your certification number. As for officiating this summer, you MUST be certified for ANY BC Hockey sanctioned league and/or tournament. Unfortunately, there are no clinics soon. Please email to find out if the league is a sanctioned league with BC Hockey and if you have any further questions. Hope this helps :)
