The 2018 FIBA Rules Exam will be available for all officials to take beginning November 30th at 12pm (EST) and will close on December 10th at 5pm (EST). 

The NOCP 1/Prospects FIBA Exam consists of 30 questions and the NOCP 2,3,4,5 exam consists of 50 questions. Officials will have 2 hours to complete the exam and are “Yes” or “No” questions.

Officials will be only be able to register for the exam which corresponds with their current NOCP level as seen on ‘my profile’ and ‘my certification’ tabs. Except in the following situations:

  • Prospect officials will have access to take the NOCP 1 FIBA Exam 
  • NOCP Level 1 officials will have access to take the NOCP 1 FIBA Exam with 30 questions. If a Level 1 official would like to move to NOCP 2 this year, they also have access to take the NOCP 2 FIBA Exam with 50 questions. However, you can only take 1 of the 2 available exams. Once you start in one of the NOCP exams you will not be able to access the other exam.

NOCP 2,3,4 officials that are working towards advancing to the next NOCP level this year will still take their respective exams. If their results are at the standard for the NOCP level they are working towards (NOCP 3, 4, 5 = 86%) the exam results can be submitted and used. If I am NOCP level 2 and working on NOCP level 3 I will write the level 2 exam achieve 86% or higher and submit those results on the NOCP level 2 exam as I advance.

You will receive your exam results immediately after you submit your exam. The exam
