National Official Certification Program (NOCP)

The National Officials Certification Program is a cooperative effort between Canada Basketball and the Canadian Association of Basketball Officials. The program consists of 5 levels, 3 of which are administered by the Provincial Association, 1 by CABO and 1 by FIBA. Certification is not a requirement to officiate. However, CABO and Canada Basketball strongly encourage all officials to become certified. The essence of the program is contained in the core outcomes:

  • Rule Knowledge

  • Floor Mechanics

  • Game Management

  • Court Presence
