Curling Canada recognizes the need for a National Curling Umpires Certification Program. Accordingly, standard guidelines for the training and development of curling umpires 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 Umpire, and Hogline Umpire
Certification requires candidate to take the Level 1 Umpires Course and Game Experience

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

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

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

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

The Umpire Courses have been designed not only to train umpires 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.
