Make Ethical Decisions (MED) Courses:

*NOTE: MED Course is required and must be done BEFORE taking the online evaluation. If you have already done the online evaluation, you still need to take the course to complete the pathway. The MED course offered directly through Alberta Sport or NCCP is the same as what we are hosting through Ringette Alberta, but we subsidize so the cost is less. The class component can be done in-person or via webinar, but it is with an instructor at a specified time.
