WPC Canada Powerlifting Principles

We are a LIFTER FRIENDLY organization. So judging is geared to ensuring fairness across all lifters while ensuring that lifters have the benefit on the platform, not the rulebook.

Becoming A WPCCP Judge

To be a judge in WPC Canada Powerlifting, you need to be over 25 years of age, have demonstrated an interest in the sport and have successfully passed the written exam. Written exams can be obtained by contacting John Dietrich.

We follow the WPC rule book and it is available at the WPC Website.

For Canadian judges your first meet after qualifying will be supervised by a senior WPCCP  judge who will point out any inconsistencies between your practical work and the rulebook.

International Judges

After undertaking WPCCP meets as a Canadian certified judge You can also become an international accredited judge. This process involves passing an intense written exam administered by the World Powerlifting Congress with a 90% or greater passing grade. You can repeat the exam if necessary. Once you have passed the exam you have to complete a practical certification under the supervision of existing WPC certified International Referees. The practical exam consists of in meet testing where nuances are explained, your approach to judging is examined and you are prepared to judge the best and biggest lifters on the planet.

To obtain a copy of the international test contact John Dietrich.
