2015 NSO Cert Tests
« on: May 13, 2015, 01:30:58 am »
The 2015 NSO Certification tests are now available. The five tests are:

-Rules & Procedures (basic certification test)
-Head NSO Endorsement test
-Penalty Management Endorsement test
-Penalty Tracking Endorsement test
-Score & Timing Endorsement test

The 2014 tests will no longer be sent out and should no longer be taken. Any 2014 tests taken after today's date will not be valid.

If you have passed any of the 2014 tests and have not yet gone up for Certification or Endorsements, those test results will be valid through June 10 (the deadline for the June review cycle). After this date, only the 2015 tests will be used for Certification or Endorsements.

Who may proctor the tests?

-WFTDA League Reps (those serving as Skater Reps)
-WFTDA Certified Officials who have passed the test. Officials must pass the 2015 Rules & Procedures test before proctoring it. Officials who hold Endorsements may proctor the 2015 tests for the Endorsements they hold without needing to pass that particular test first.

If you are an Official who is a Skater Rep for your league, we kindly request that you pass the test before proctoring it.

Proctors, please contact to request a copy of the test.

The 2015 tests have some exciting changes in the Paperwork sections!

First, the Rules & Procedures test no longer includes Inside Whiteboard.

Second, although test takers must still fill out the StatsBook sheets for each position; the StatsBook sheets will not be graded. Test takers will use the information they write on those sheets to answer fill-in-the-blank questions on each section. Those questions are what will be graded. We ask that proctors still send in the completed paperwork so that Cert can use it as an assessment tool during a review.

We're still working on dyslexic font versions of these tests and hope to have them available as soon as possible. I will update this thread when they're ready.

NSO Cert appreciates receiving feedback on the tests. With this version, we are particularly interested to hear how it is for people to grade (especially those not very familiar with the StatsBook). Please send feedback directly to

These tests are the result of a lot of hard work and cross-committee and pillar collaboration, and I'd like to thank everyone involved in producing them, including members of Cert, Off Comm, Stats, Rules, Marketing and Games Management.
