All Badger Region professional scorers have undergone a standardized training program to gain and maintain scorer certification. There are three certification levels a professional scorer may achieve: Provisional, Regional and National. Each certification level builds upon the previous level and allows the certified individual to score increasingly difficult matches. A certified scorer may either work through the certification levels or remain at their current certification level by re-certifying annually.
Please note that scorers are considered IN-TRAINING until they have completed all requirements of the first certification level.

An individual working towards Provisional certification is considered in-training until he or she has completed all the requirements outlined on the Provisional page. All Provisional certification requirements must be completed before an individual is eligible to accept paid match assignments in Badger Region. If an in-training scorer is unable to meet these certification requirements over the course of a certification period, he or she will be required to restart the process. Click each step on the Provision page for additional information or registration materials.
