Curling Canada recognizes the need for a National Curling Officials Certification Program. Accordingly, standard guidelines for the training and development of curling officials who will be capable of officiating at provincial or national competitions have been developed.

There is a five level system developed:

LEVEL 1 – Game Observer, Timing Official, and Hogline Official
Certification requires candidate to take the Level 1 Officiating Course and Game Experience

LEVEL 2 – Same as above and Provincial Supervising Official/Alternate Head Official
Certification requires candidate to take the Level 2 Officiating Course and Game Experience

LEVEL 3 – Provincial Head Official
Certification is a Provincial Appointment by CURLSASK

LEVEL 4 – National Supervising Official
Certification is a National Appointment by Curling Canada

LEVEL 5 – National Head Official
Certification is a National Appointment by Curling Canada

The Officiating Courses have been designed not only to train officials but also to make players and coaches more knowledgeable about the officiating system and the rules of the game.

Most courses in Saskatchewan are held yearly in curling communities that are hosting Provincial/National events.
