Question: What is MED?
Answer: Making Ethical Decisions (MED) is a course run by the NCCP that is mandatory for all ringette coaches.  It is comprised of a course and an online evaluation.

Answer: Yes.  You can sign up here

Question: I took MED last year.  Do I need to take it again?
Answer: If you successfully passed the MED evaluation in a prior year, you do not need to take it again.

Answer: The CAO does offer it occasionally online, but they limit the amount of registrants and it fills up quickly.
