New and current USACUA Members who are interested in  obtaining their WICUA Certifications shall be required to attend at least 75% of the training seminars to qualify for the examinations conducted each year by WICUA.

USACUA is a certified training center for WICUA examinations and certifications. Members who have successfully completed the USACUA certifications and WICUA Written Examination will be eligible for the “WICUA Practical and WICUA Oral Examinations.

This examination will be administered to the qualified assessors each year by the USACUA Training Committee.

The prospective members shall be assessed over SIX games by qualified assessors throughout the USA or the West Indies. Each of the six games must be at least 40-over games.

The Practical and Oral Examinations together are considered to be the final phase in becoming a “Fully Certified” Umpire of the WICUA (and, by extension, of the USACUA).  In this phase, the practical assessments shall carry 60% weight and the oral examination, 40%.

Candidates who qualify for these practical assessments and are provided with a schedule are expected to contact their USACUA-approved Assessors to coordinate specific locations, dates, and times for each of their six assessments.

A candidate may be evaluated by an assessor only a maximum of two games.

The WICUA Final Oral Examination will be administered by a WICUA Training Committee member, usually in person, within the USA.
