On behalf of USA Hockey and the Officiating Program, we would like to thank you for your involvement in officiating and for your patience. As you are aware, USA Hockey’s Officiating Program has undertaken a significant initiative with the development of an online seminar curriculum designed to further enhance the education of our member officials. These types of projects are seldom completed without glitches and in our case, the primary glitch was the delay in the final video production of many of the modules. We certainly apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience and understanding through this process. We are confident that your patience will be rewarded with a quality product that enhances your officiating experience.
On the positive side, the required portion of the online seminar curriculum was launched on August 22nd and to date we have had over 4000 officials (including 1000 the first weekend) successfully log-in and complete these required modules. We realize there are still many of you who will start the process shortly and are confident you will have the same level of success in navigating through the system.
The “Elective” portion of the online seminar curriculum will be launched at 2:00 PM (Eastern Time) on Friday, September 12th. At that time, when you log-in to your specific curriculum, you will see a new listing of course material under four categories. Within each category, you will be asked to complete a certain number of modules (depending on your level of registration) from a list of presentations that you choose because they are of most interest to you. Once you have completed the required number of modules in a specific category, the menu bar will reflect that completion and you are free to move on to the next category. When all four category requirements have been completed, you have successfully completed the online seminar curriculum and will be sent a confirmation email that you should hold onto as verification. At the same time, information will be shared with the USA Hockey database (please allow 24 hours for the various websites to be able to communicate this information) and your profile will reflect completion of the online seminar requirement.
In addition, for those of you who have logged into the system and completed the required portion of the modules, your time restraint to complete the modules within a certain period will be waived as a result of the delay in making the elective portion available. Everyone will have plenty of opportunity to complete the online curriculum in a reasonable time frame.
Once again, thank you for your continued commitment to USA Hockey and for your involvement in officiating
