Currently, the curricula and examinations for these courses are being revamped to conform to the updated CCC Officials’ Manual, and thus examinations for Level 2 candidates will be given after the 2005-06 season. To keep their ACTIVE status, current Level 2 Officials need to be recertified by attending one-half day Recertification Courses which will be arranged in Calgary and Edmonton and in conjunction with planned Level 2 Courses for new candidates.
The revised CCC Officials’ Manual Version 3.0 is now posted under “Officiating Resources” in the Officiating / Event Management menu on the CCC website at http://www.cccski.com/main.asp. CCA has made copies of this 460-page document for purchase of $15.00.
CCA is offering the opportunity to two (2) Level 2 officials to attend the Nationals (in March, 2006 in Thunder Bay) to proceed to Level 3 and become Technical Delegates. Member clubs are requested to submit candidates.
For further information, please contact John Cushing, CCA Director of Events & Scheduling (780-438-6831; [email protected]), and / or Michael Neary, CCA Sport Manager (780-415-1738; [email protected]).
