The HTCP is a risk management and safety education program for the volunteer hockey trainer. The ultimate goal of the program is to have all Hockey Trainers implement effective risk management on their own teams, where safety is the first priority at all times, both on and off the ice. All Hockey Trainers should utilize a proactive, preventative approach to safety while being prepared to react in the event of accidents, injuries or medical emergencies.
The HTCP is designed to educate people in the prevention, recognition and treatment of hockey related injuries. The HTCP offers three levels of certification, which are designed to assist the individual trainer as his or her experience grows. Program content, administration and policies are established through the HDCO Trainers Committee and through consultation with Hockey Canada's National Trainers Committee.

Once you have completed and passed the course your Hockey Canada profile will be automatically updated.
HTCP certification is only one of the trainer qualifications that is required before you can be placed on a team roster and be an active member of the bench staff. To be added to a team roster you must also have Speakout Certification [RIS]. For more information on Speakout Certification, click here. As a MOHA volunteer you are also required to have a valid Police Clearance on file with the MOHA.
