CAP I, CAP II, and CAP III 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 cap@usav.org. A lapsed certification means this coach's recertification options will likely diminish from the listings below. 

CAP Recertification Credits Needed  
CAP Level I  4 Credits in 4 years 
CAP Level II  5 Credits in 4 years 
CAP 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.

So if re-certifying any prior CAP certification in 2004, your CAP certificate will be good until the same date in 2008. At that time you will need to re-new under the new requirements. Anyone accrediting for the first time in 2004 or beyond will have to play by the new rules.

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).
