New Officials
If this is this first time you are applying as a USA Track & Field Official, then you should go to the New Association Officials Certification section and select any of the Track & Field, Long Distance Running and Cross Country or Race Walk Rules Review. The exam will require you have a 2008 USATF Competition Rules Book. You can purchase a hardcopy version of the 2008 USATF Competition Rules by going clicking here. Or you may download the Competition Rules by clicking here.

All Other Officials
If you are already a USA Track & Field Official, then you need to complete the rules review for your desired level and discpline. For example, if, in 2008 you are certified as a National Level Track & Field official, and you want to remain a National Level Track & Field official in 2009, then you need to complete the Track & Field Rules Review for the National Level. You do not need to take the Association Level Track & Field Rules Review.
