- Score 90% or above on the most recent certification test in that sport;
- Attend the IHSAA sponsored rules interpretation meeting that sport for the year
- Attend the IHSAA sponsored certification clinic in that sport in the year of the certification.
Certification clinics and tests are given every two years. Check your IHSAA Officials Handbook for the rotation
