Well, that depends on what state you live in. In most states, you have to be in that CEP level for one year before you can advance to the next level.
However, in the state of Arizona, you can take all three levels within the same year. Yeah it's a joke! The whole purpose of waiting one year between levels is so you get some experience behind you.
Plus, as you know, each level of age groups you coach, requires a different level of CEP. So if you have never coached before and you want to coach JV, you might only get the chance to be an assistant coach. But that might also depend on your hockey director and the number of coaches within his program.
