Equine Canada Coaching Programs
The sequence of coaching certification as revised in the last few years is: Instructor of Beginner, Competition Coach, Competition Coach Specialist (Dressage, Jumper, Hunter, Eventer), and High Performance 1 & 2 Coach. 
The EC coaching program has some 21 coaching seminars/workshops launched at this time.  This includes English, Western, and Driving although many workshops are generic and would be of interests to coaches and riders in any discipline.  AEF lists a number of workshops being offered in Alberta along with information on the coaching certification programs.  The seminars are prepared for national use, so the content is the same across Canada.
