When you choose the level you are credentialing, please take into consideration your previous certifications. If you hold an active USASF and/or BCCA certification (or ones that expired less than 6 month ago), you can choose to re-certify your current level or get certified to the next levels. If you have never received any cheerleading certification, you will have to start with level 1 and up to the level you seek. During the month of April, we will send coaches the online tests after they have signed up and paid the invoice for the level they wish to credential. The online tests are to be completed no later than April 30th. Throughout May, credentialing instructors around the lower mainland and the interior will contact those closest to them to schedule an in-person testing session. The in-person session should be completed by May 31st.
Please note that if a coach have never held a coaching certification in cheerleading you need to formally apply for an exemption to the BCCA board if you wish to do level 1-5 in a single testing session. The board will review the coach's experience and their need for being level 5 certified as part of the application. Please contact email@example.com for more information if this applies to you.
** practical field experience is required if this is your first time credentialing to level 3, 4, or 5. Please refer to the practical field form.
