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.

Question: I am a new coach this year.  Do I need the MED course?  
Answer: Yes.  You can sign up here

Question: What do I do after I take the MED course?
Answer: You must take the online evaluation prior to Jan 8 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.
Question: I heard I can complete MED course online.  Is that true?
Answer: The CAO does offer it occasionally online, but they limit the amount of registrants and it fills up quickly.
Question: Can I challenge the MED course and just take the evaluation?
Answer: No.  Ringette Canada and Ontario Ringette have stated that the course is mandatory prior to taking the evaluation.
Question: What if I can't make the MED clinic that is being offered by Ringette?
Answer: You will need to take it with another sport.  You can find the calendar of courses here 

Coaches: Have you taken the Competition Introduction (CI) course this season? There is a bursury available that may be able to put some money back in your pocket. You can apply here.
