Rule Exams

The Canada Basketball Officials Commission (CBOC) creates and distributes a national officials exam each year, usually in December. The exam is administered online. All active referees in Canada are required to write and pass this exam in order to continue officiating. For certain assignment and appointments, a minimum exam mark is required.

To help prepare EBOA members for the annual exam, a number of past and refresher exams are available for review, completion and study.  Use the FIBA Rulebook, the FIBA Interpretations Manual and the CBOC Casebook when doing exam prep.
