My council (Pioneer Valley Council, Western Mass) has hosted NCS for
'91 and '92 and will be hosting it again in '93. We have a fairly
large COPE course, and I'm almost certain that they provided a course
in COPE certification. We currently have 2 or 3 people in our council
that are COPE certified. We have been running COPE at our camp (H.A.
Moses Scout Reservation) for about 6-7 years now (can't remember
exactly when it started)
