EVERY OFFICIAL - ADULTS AND ASSOCIATES - MUST ATTEND A CERTIFICATION CLASS PRIOR TO EACH SEASON AND COMPLETE A CERTIFICATION TEST. This applies to new and returning officials. Officials are presented with new rules, rules changes, annual points of emphasis, procedural changes, new mechanics and new materials. They are also given a thorough rules refresher and mechanics refresher.
Once the Associate Officials complete the annual classroom training, they must successfully complete a certification test. They will take the test online shortly after the class.
New Associate Officials then go through the Mentoring Process.
