三级裁判

三级裁判又称高级裁判,是裁判中的专家,重要组织化赛事(Premier Organized Play)的领导者。他们是大奖赛中的组长、执法许多其他的重要赛事、并将他们的成熟经验和知识分享给其他裁判。他们与全球的裁判计划相关,参与或领导他们感兴趣的裁判项目是他们职责的一部分。三级裁判指导并认证一级和二级裁判候选人。

成为三级裁判的要求非常严苛,需要候选人展示突出的贡献、技巧、知识和交流能力。三级是最高的裁判等级,而成为三级裁判是极高的成就。

晋级标准

在这里查看当前的三级裁判认证流程,并有以下改变:

  • 英语能力只需达到能够在大奖赛中作为组长、并阅读官方文件的程度。
  • 赛事中的领导能力可以取代社群参与度。
  • 当前的三级裁判认证流程的一部分移到了认证,并可以分别独立完成。
  • 对“后勤和比赛运行”中展示的能力有额外的要求。

维持资格的要求

Advanced Roles

Advanced Roles represent additional structures for Premier Judges that represent leadership aspects of the Judge Program. Each role has a set number of places available (though the number may fluctuate over time as need arises). A Premier Judge may hold more than one Advanced Role at the same time.

Judges hold Advanced Roles for 18 months. Every six months, one third of the roles will expire, and a new round of applications will be considered. Expiring judges are welcome to reapply during this process. Applications are handled by the non-expiring members of that role, who collect the results and submit feedback on each candidate to Wizards for final selection.

A Premier Judge applying for an Advanced Role should have demonstrated exceptional skill as a Premier Judge; event and project work will be considered in the application. Because they have a set expiration, there are no formal maintenance requirements for Advanced Roles (though in exceptional circumstances, a judge could be removed at the discretion of the Judge Community Manager).

Geo-regional considerations may apply during candidate selection for a role. Judges are generally discouraged from attempting to fulfill more than two of these roles at the same time.

Grand Prix Head Judge

These judges are responsible for acting as Head Judges, Support Judges, and Appeals Judges for Grand Prix events. Duties vary according to which role they have been assigned to for a particular Grand Prix, but may include pre-tournament staff planning, communication, coordinating the event, taking appeals, and providing post-event reporting.

A newly-appointed judge to this role will spend the first few Grand Prix as a Support Judge to ensure a smooth transition to a full Grand Prix Head Judge role.

Grand Prix Head Judges are expected to demonstrate exceptional rules knowledge, ability to clearly articulate rules, policies, and the underlying philosophies, leadership, and organizational skills.

The current anticipated need for Grand Prix Head Judges is 21-24.

Application Process

  • Demonstrated success as a Grand Prix team lead.
  • Cover letter.
  • Rules test.
  • Policy test.

Applicants who pass this step move on to:

  • Policy Situation test and Grand Prix Head Judge evaluation.

Program Coordinators

These judges are responsible for taking strategic direction from Wizards and figuring out how to implement it program-wide. This is done by coordinating with other judges who lead various projects, and part of their role is to ensure projects have clear direction, success criteria, and project members are being appropriately recognized.

Program Coordinators must be excellent communicators and have a strong vision for the success of the program. They must be capable of working well with others and provide leadership by example, and have demonstrated success at leading past projects.

The current anticipated need for Program Coordinators is 4-6.

Application Process

  • Demonstrated success at leading a project.
  • Written application describing areas of challenge for the Judge Program and thoughts on approaches to address them.
  • Interview with a current PC for final candidates.

Regional Coordinators

These judges are responsible for the maintenance of the Judge Program on a regional level; each geographic area has a Regional Coordinator who is responsible for further structure (such as Area Captains, to whom they are empowered to delegate responsibilities) in their regions. They handle the day-to-day needs of their regional judges, oversee Level 1 and Level 2 testing, advancement and maintenance, work with organizers to make sure their needs are met, and ensure care and training of the judges in their region.

The application process for Regional Coordinator involves an interview with a member of the Regional Coordinator group.

认证

裁判可以在其等级职责之外,额外申请认证。这对于裁判是机会和新的挑战。认证可以辅助证明裁判具有额外的能力。虽然所有裁判都可以申请认证,一些认证在申请前可能需要达到某些前置条件(如等级和其他认证)。

裁判获得的认证将会在他的Judge Apps资料页面列出。
