2016 List of Acceptable Re-Cert Credits

Recertification Overview:

CAP and BCAP certifications are current for 4 years. All coaches are required to recertify within that 4-year time frame. Recertification options by CAP level are listed below. Please note: this list applies to coaches who are currently certified or within 12 months of certification lapsing. If a coach's certification has lapsed for more than one year (12 months), he/she should contact the USAV Coaching Education national office via email at A lapsed certification means this coach's recertification options will likely diminish from the listings below. 

CAP/BCAP Recertification Credits Needed  
CAP/BCAP Level I  4 Credits in 4 years 
CAP/BCAP Level II  5 Credits in 4 years 
CAP/BCAP Level III  6 Credits in 4 years 
*Coaches may receive more than the required amount of credits above but only credits earned while their certification is current can be applied toward recertification.

Additional information regarding CAP accreditation:

The CAP Level I, II and III courses, and the associated accreditation requirements also changed in 2004 following a re-design of the program. These requirements reverted to the original requirement of re-certification at the same level or move up every 4 years (each "Quad"), which was the requirement prior to the year 2001.

As of 2004, coaches will also need to pass a background check in order to be certified or re-certify their accreditation at any level. Anyone who is associated with a USAV Junior Club Team or program will undergo the background check through their USAV Region office.

Those not affiliated with a USAV Jr. club team will also need to go through the background check prior to being CAP certified or re-certified at any level (If not a USAV member, coaches will be required to pay an additional $25 processing fee).
