take a 50 question, Level 1 specific rules exam where 35 is a passing score. Level 2
Officials are required to pass a different 50 question Level 2 specific open book test where 40 is a passing
grade and a new Level 2 specific closed book test where 24 out of 30 questions is passing.
Level 3 and Level 4 Officials will also have Level-specific open and closed book tests
where 45 out of 50 is passing for the open book and 40 out of 50 is passing for
the closed book tests.

"test out" of the elective portion of the online curriculum. You will still
be required to complete the core online seminar modules, but returning Level
3's and 4's will not be required to repeat the elective modules.
