Making Ethical Decisions (MED)
Soccer coaches must complete Make Ethical Decisions Competition Introduction (MED) module in order to complete their program and gain “Trained” status in the NCCP database. Coaches are only required to complete MED once.

MED Workshop
By successfully completing the MED workshop coaches will be fully equipped to handle virtually any ethical situation with confidence and surety. MED helps coaches identify the legal, ethical, and moral implications of difficult situations that present themselves in the world of team and individual sport.

A standardized decision-making module gives coaches a thorough process to rely on, while shared knowledge from qualified Learning Facilitators and experienced peers helps move the key principles out of the classroom and into the real world.

The MED workshop is a cornerstone of the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), and leaves coaches with no doubt as to what to do when the going gets tough.

Who Needs MED?
Successful completion of the online MED evaluation is necessary for certification in any new NCCP program. MED training is not necessary to take the evaluation or to achieve certification however in certain programs it can lead to ‘trained’ status. Therefore, any coach wishing to attain ‘trained’ status should investigate taking an MED workshop.
