Become a Race Official

Events News November 15, 2023

Race officials are the backbone of our organization. Thanks to their commitment to the sport and to volunteering, we are able to offer sanctioned and recreational events. Officials take nationally recognized training. As they move through training levels, they can receive grants to cover the certification costs.

How to Become an Official

Becoming a Level 1 official is easy and free. Simply create an account in the Nordiq Canada Officials Training Centre , and then click “Nordiq Canada Officials Level 1 Online Certification.”

Level 1 certification allows you to do individual tasks at races under the supervision of an experienced Chief. Level 1 online training includes eight sections, each one taking 30-40 minutes. Take all the time you want. Your success is our success in gaining new trained volunteers.
