Note for clarification

The above requirements are the min to be accepted into the “Provisional Range Master” Program. Once accepted, the following items are required to be completed during the minimum 1 year of mentoring as a “Provisional Range Master.” To be “mentored” simply means the candidate MUST work alongside their senior/mentoring RM during all of the requirements below. The candidate will not work alone as a RM but always alongside their mentor.

Mentoring items:

  • Must work as a mentored RM @ at least 4 level II matches.
  • Must work as a mentored RM @ at least 1 level III or higher match.
  • For each of the above matches the mentoring RM must complete a written report of the students performance which must include:
    • Details of any arbitrations.
    • Details of decisions made by the student.
    • Details of any mistake made by the student (we all make them, let’s be honest).
  • A final report from the Mentor, after all of the above matches are completed, documenting the student’s performance must be submitted, along with the above individual match reports, to the President of NROI Canada.

The reports will be reviewed by the Regional Director & President of NROI. Based on these reports, and any other reports received, the candidate will be given a final decision within 30 days.

This final decision will have 3 possible outcomes:

  1. Candidate is successful and is promoted to full Range Master.
  2. Candidate requires further training/mentoring. Provisional status remains, review in 6 months.
  3. Candidate has failed to meet the minimum requirements, and due to one or more reasons is removed from the RM training program at this time. Depending on specific circumstances, the candidate may reapply in 1 year.
