Happy New Year!!! Hope you had a wonderful holiday with family and friends! 
 
No update on R9 (the singular standard by which all officials are certified and trained). We will continue with our LSC training and certification.
 
2024 Officials Recertification:
 
Only recertification exams are required for 2024. If you became certified 9/1/23 - 12/31/23 you do not need to re-test and have automatically been advanced to 12/31/2024. If you have not taken the recertification exam/s your LSC credentials have been extended to 3/04/2024. If you have taken the recertification exam/s and your LSC expiration date has not been updated 12/31/2024 please let me know. LSC certifications updated to 12/31/2024 no action required. Trainees no action required.
 
2024 Recertification Exams by position:
 
Referee: referee and administrative referee
Starter: starter and stroke & turn
Stroke and Turn: stroke and turn
Electronic Timing: timing judge
Administrative Official: administrative official and timing judge
 
You can find exams at USA Swimming University. To narrow your options select officials then recertification exams.
 
I am unable to view exam results within an account (doesn't mean its not there, I just can not view) and I do not receive notification when an exam is completed. There have been a considerable number of anomalies with exam reports. For the most accurate reporting I will need you to send a screen shot of your competed exam (only a screenshot of results, not the entire exam). 
 

Officials can update club affiliation and email preferences within their USAS account. Your account is not synced to the OSI website; please let me know if you have made changes and I will update the OSI website.

There have been numerous questions as to why certification and recertification test results are not syncing to an official's OTS account.  USA Swimming is exploring a more intuitive process, but for now please make sure you are following the directions below after completing the test.
  • Complete certification/recertification test
  • Open the scored test by clicking on the score link
  • Scroll to the bottom of the scored test
    • This will also allow for a review of missed questions
  • Click on the NEXT button
  • This will take the official to a completion screen and should sync the test result (passed) to their account
If this does not resolve the issue, please let me know and we will submit a HELP ticket.
