The demand for officials and volunteers at our events is high, if everyone pitches in and helps out we will be successful in executing the best events possible for our athletes.
The purpose of the Canada~Snowboard Level I certification course is to ensure that all participants receive the basic knowledge regarding the execution of snowboard competitions in all disciplines. Having completed the necessary steps in achieving this certification standard, a Level Iofficial will be able to assist in a variety of roles on the hill and/or indoor, at the regional and NorAM tour event levels.
In this Level I official course a participant will learn skills, rules, format of snowboard competitions and get some practical experience.
The purpose of the Canada~Snowboard Level II certification course is to ensure that all participants receive the necessary knowledge through a variety of roles in a real officiating environment to ensure proper execution of snowboard competitions in all disciplines. Having completed the necessary steps, a Level II official will be able to lead in a variety of roles on the hill and/or indoor, at the regional, national tour and in some cases world cup level events.

They will experiment through practical experiences as senior officials and will be tested on their skills and leadership abilities in action. The participant will then become a reference person in their province, to support local organizing comities (LOC’s) in the preparation and execution stages of their events. The level 3 certified official will also represent Canada~Snowboard as a key official.
Once all the necessary steps in achieving this certification standard are completed the level III certified officials will:
