CCES Online Education Completion Requirement

Dear Current, Renewing and Future Members of the CPU,

The growth, success and true national reach of the CPU can be directly linked to our core values. These values include our high and consistent officiating standards, the quality and organization of our meets, our excellent and expert volunteers and our stand against the use of performance enhancing drugs. These values accounts for the high quality of lifting in the CPU, the strength of our organization and the size and growth of our membership. These values are diligently maintained by the CPU Board and by your provincial associations to support you in your efforts as an athlete and as a member of this great community.

Strengthening our stand against the use of performance enhancing drugs, the CPU now participates in the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) and has fully adopted the WADA Code. Doing so allowed the CPU to take additional and very significant steps to protect the health and rights of our athletes.

The CPU is now asking all members to participate in the CADP in a very direct way.

To maintain membership in good standing and to register for future competitions, members are required to complete the CCES True Sport Clean online education module. Please follow this link, and chose the English or Francais version, and complete the course.

At the time of online membership purchase, renewing, returning or new members will be directed to the CCES True Sport Clean online education module. They will be required to complete the course prior to their purchase being finalized and membership activated.

For athletes currently included in the CPU Whereabouts Program or listed on the CPU National Testing Pool who have previously completed the True Sport Clean online education module, no action is required. However, for those athletes yet to complete the course, completion deadline is February 1, 2017.

Should you have questions or concerns, please contact Chris Robb, Chair of the CPU Anti-Doping Committee at or me at

Best regards,
Mark Giffin, President
