CCC Officials Level 3 Certification Course

    September 29, 2015

    Join fellow cross country ski officials from across Canada for this exciting opportunity to learn from a variety of our sport’s top officials, to share event management experiences and to network with other club, division and national officials.  Offered in conjunction with the 2016 Haywood NorAm World Jr/U23 Trials in Thunder Bay at the Lappe Nordic Ski Centre, it represents an ideal opportunity to review a number of interesting event formats under the direction of an experienced Organizing Committee. This facilitated course will combine a series of expert-led sessions with on-site event observation assignments and participant presentations on pre-course assigned topics. Pre and post course assignments complete the evaluation components of this course.

    A LEVEL 3 OFFICIALS COURSE is designed to prepare officials to:

          1.    effectively structure, staff and manage a Competition Committee at Division through National level events,
    2.    perform any “major official” role at the National Championship level,
    3.    lead an event organizing committee for a major event,
    4.    perform the role of a Divisional TD,
    5.    be familiar with CCC technical packages, CCC/FIS rules and make appropriate rule interpretations as they apply to CCC Tier 1 and Tier 2 level competitions


    • Qualified Level 2 Officials seeking Level 3 certification (requires your Division recommendation which confirms your completion of Level 3 prerequisites as recorded in your experience log in the CCC Officials Registry. See below reference from the Officials’ Manual – updated Oct 2012)
    • existing Level 3 and 4 Officials/TDs who have not been recertified since 2009 (i.e. have not taken a Level 3 Officials Course or CCC/FIS TD Seminar Course.)
