Looks like the Football Coaching Certification haters have a problem though, Calgary Minor Football actually lists "**Coaching Certification Levels" as a PRIORITY in the promotion of the sport of football to the general public. 
Right after "*Safe Contact".

Do you honestly think they will turn away great coaches because they don't have Football Canada Level 1 coaching?

Who would you rather have coach your kids, some slappy who was a backup in high school with zero coaching experience but has his Level 1 from Football Canada

or

2017 Vanier Cup champion head coach with no Football Canada certs?

Did you know that less than 10% of CFL coaches have any Football Canada certifications?  Would you turn them away?  Use your head kid!

Dumb bunch of oddballs with no reading comprehension whatsoever. Must have flunked High School. 
You don't "TURN AWAY" coaches, you promote Certification going forward as something that can benefit everyone including other coaches and players for parents to put their kids in football you lazy @!$%#^.
Go the the bar & slurp your beers and plunge yourself into the party platter.
Again, very obvious very few football guys had any contact with top levels of other sports. Comments give this away.

they do it in the US, they must know nothing about football, the topic is outright scaring some of the stone agers
this is an Alberta thread guy, you be cherry picking sports that y'all think DON'T certify or license coaches
we got it, you have no interest in being certified personally, loud and clear, 10-4 Roger, out, beat that topic down on a chat board in case it makes too much sense 

In the US, most high school coaches are required to complete a quick online course on hydration and concussions but there is no formal all-encompassing football course that is required by all US coaches.  If there was, it would be mandated from school board to school board, not nationwide.  I'm sure there are a few US school boards that might require some sort of certification, but aside from the heat/hydration and concussion course most US school boards do not require a full out cert program like the "Position Coach, Coordinator, Head Coach" tiered curriculum that Football Canada is pushing.

You claim to have knowledge of this, so please share what you know.  I can confidently say that our American counterparts are smart enough to know that it would be insane to try and package all football knowledge into a certification course and make it requirement for football coaches.  So why on Earth are we trying to do this in Canada?

Finally, you are basically agreeing with what most are saying here.  There are better certification options available than what Football Canada offers.  Why not let Canadian coaches use some of those American certs and clinics to get coaching education in place of the subpar AND MORE EXPENSIVE Football Canada options?

Lacrosse Certification

but football cannot do Coaching Certification? That's crazy

Information Coach Certification
MINIMUM COACHING CERTIFICATION STANDARDS FOR COACHES
Anyone on the bench (including people opening and closing doors) must be a ‘certified coach‘ or a certified ‘trainer‘.

There are 3 levels of certification for each coaching level:

‘In Training‘ – you have completed the preclinic assessment and are waiting to take clinic or you have taken the clinic and are waiting for your attendance to be marked
‘Trained‘ – you have taken the clinic , completed the workbook(if applicable) and it has been successfully marked
‘Certified‘ – you have taken the clinic, completed the workbook and a Master Facilitator has completed an ‘in person‘ assessment for you
Coaching Certification Levels

The minimum standards for coaching in the CDLA for city leagues, playoffs and provincials is:

AGE GROUP
COACH CERTIFICATION
Mini Tyke
Community Initiation - Trained
Tyke
Community Initiation - Trained
Rec / House League
Community Development - Trained
Novice
Community Development - Trained
PeeWee
Community Development - Trained
Bantam
Competitive Introduction - Trained
Midget
Competitive Introduction - Trained
Junior   Competitive Introduction - Trained
NOTES:
– Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches will be held to the same standard at ALL levels

– If you completed a course last year at the Competitive Introduction level, THEN YOU MUST COMPLETE YOUR COACH WORKBOOK THROUGH YOUR ONLINE COACHING ACCOUNT BY MARCH 31, OR YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE THE COURSE AGAIN. Due to the volume of workbooks that are submitted each year, it is advisable to complete and submit your online workbook by September 1st of the year you took the clinic to allow enough time for marking before the next season.

– There are three levels of Certification for all courses:

– In Training – means you have completed preclinic and/ or clinic and awaiting attendance to be marked

– Trained – means you have completed the workbook online ( if applicable) following the clinic and it has been reviewed and approved; for Community Initiation and effective 2015 for Community Development, you will receive trained status after completion of the appropriate clinic and attendance is marked.

– Certified – means that in addition to completing the workbook, you have had an ‘in person‘ assessment by a Master Facilitator, and have completed the ‘Making Ethical Decisions‘ online test through the Coaching Association of Canada.( Competitive Introduction level only )

– A first year coach may be ‘In Training‘ (this means you have taken the clinic and are awaiting attendance to be marked ).

– if you are a first year coach at the Mini Tyke/Tyke levels, you only need to complete the Community Initiation clinic

– if you are a first year coach at the Novice or PeeWee levels, you need to complete the Community Development clinic; you DO NOT have to take the Community Initiation clinic prior to this clinic, you can simply start at this level.

– if you are a new coach at the Bantam and Midget levels, you must complete the Community Development clinic/level first before you take the Competitive Introduction level; however, you cannot take both these levels in the same year, so you would have to start by taking the Community Development clinic; if you played at the Jr level or above and would like to challenge the Community Development level, you can do so to earn ‘credit‘ for that level and then take the ‘Competitive Intro‘ clinic at a future date.

– A second year (and beyond) coach must be ‘Trained‘ status(this means you took the clinic with attendance marked, and completed any applicable workbook online and it has been successfully corrected)

– In order to coach a TEAM ALBERTA team, a coach must be ‘Certified‘ which means that a Master Learning Facilitator has completed an ‘in person‘ review and assessment of the coach and they have passed this successfully.

Trainer Certification Levels:

Trainers must be certified with a recognized ‘First Aid Course‘ (ie: St John‘s Ambulance) or can be a registered nurse or doctor.

None of the geniuses on this thread even know that the CBFA Rules actually require Certification for ALL football coaches but especially HEAD COACHES

28. Each Team shall have at least one coach who is and shall continue to be certified by
the Canadian Amateur Football Association as having attained level II in the Coaching
Certification Program. All additional coaches must have or be attaining level I in the
Coaching Certification Program.
As well, all Head Coaches have the responsibility of
ensuring that all Coaches and Managers with their team have an approved Police
Check prior to participating in games or practices

We all know it says this, but we also know that we'd have a massive shortage of coaches if the above rules were actually enforced.

Listen, nobody is denying that these certifications exist and are often posted as "requirements" by the league (even though they aren't actually enforced).  What everybody here is saying is that the Football Canada certifications and courses are inferior to other products out there at a significantly lower rate.  Everybody on this thread has figured that out except for you!  Are you profiting off football canada certifications or something?  Are you the LF in Calgary?

If you can't comprehend that there are better football coach educational resources out there than what football canada is offering, then there's no hope for you.
