This is from a few seasons ago, but a really good example.
All officials must complete online education regardless of level or experience. Online Education consists of a series of Course categories (total of six).
All course categories must be completed to finish online training.
All modules within the Pre-Required and Required categories must be completed. The remaining four categories contain a menu of elective modules and an official must complete the required number of modules (e.g. 4 modules of 7 offered) within the category to complete the category.
There will be a short quiz at the end of each module that the official must pass to complete the module and continue with education. If the official does not pass the quiz, the module will reset and the official must complete the module again.
Online Membership Registration must be completed for 24-hours before access to the Online Education System is granted.
LEVEL 1 Complete
LEVEL 2 Complete
LEVEL 3 Complete
LEVEL 4 Complete
An official may not change their Registration Level to a higher level once online Membership Registration is completed.
Taking a Closed Book Exam at a level higher than an official’s level of Membership Registration will not satisfy their Closed Book Exam requirement (a Level 3 CB Exam will not complete Level 2 Registration). If a higher level exam is submitted, the exam will be rejected and the official will be “completed” as a Level 1 for the season.
“Complete” means that an official has met all the criteria (exams, seminars, online training, etc.) at the level for which he/she has applied. “Incomplete” means that an official has filed an application but has not completed all the necessary criteria to be “complete” at any level.
A new official (not registered the previous year) may not officiate until he/she is completely registered. A returning official (“complete” the previous season) may not officiate after November 30 of the current season (expiration date on previous year’s card) unless he/she is completely registered for the current season.
As part of USA Hockey’s continued effort to create a safe playing environment for all participants, those officials who are 18 years of age or older (as of August 1 of the current registration season) are required to complete an online SafeSport Education Program every two seasons. The online program is free of charge.
