I just got back from teaching the yearly MMA Officials Training in Raleigh, NC. Thats right, I said yearly. NC requires all of their officials to retest every year as judges and referees. I have been teaching the MMA side of the training for the last 3 years. It is awesome to see a state where there is accountability for the officials.

The judges must score at least an 85% on their exam which includes recognition of submissions and positions, round scoring, and definitions. Referees must apply and demonstrate escapes from common submissions. In addition to that they go over safely stopping submissions and scenario training. Referees must pass a written and practical exam with a score of at least 85% as well.

I would love to see more commissions require their officials to keep their skills up and train together.
