Global Certification Program

THE GLOBAL CERTIFICATION PROGRAM (GCP)

Introduction To The Program

This program emerges from a strong intention to promote educational, ethical, and prevention values within the video game community and the esports industry.

Since coaches are influential cultural mediators for young athletes, it seemed fundamental to set up a Certification Program whose primary intention is to professionalize this practice.

This professionalization will be achieved by a standardized Accreditation & Certification Program based on three frameworks.

  • Didactical & Philosophical
  • Performance & Training
  • Individual & Social

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

What are the program’s goals?

Establish standards and norms for coaches.

Facilitate communication between stakeholders by establishing the basis of a common language.

Provide a list of the skills required by all coaches and the means to develop them.

To bring consistency and continuity to the ecosystem.

Allow mutual recognition of certificates between the various stakeholder within the industry.

The 14 skills

An esports coach’s role is both complex and multifaceted and involves the mobilization of several professional skills. This is one reason we propose a series of 14 skills that the coach must develop to have all the tools required to fulfill his or her functions. Whether they are pedagogical, personal, social, specific to esports, or transversal, these skills are interrelated, complementary, and distinct at the same time.
