Open Book Exam


This teaching tool will help new officials learn the USA Hockey Playing Rules and their location in the Rule Book. Additionally it will help returning officials reinforce rule knowledge to prepare for the season.

You must complete Online Membership Registration with USA Hockey as an official to access the Open Book Exam. Your exam will become available through the above-posted link 24-hours after completing membership registration.

To enter the exam, you will need to enter your Last Name (as entered during Membership Registration) and your USA Hockey Officiating Number (this will be sent via confirmation email after Membership Registration).

Please use the current USA Hockey Rule Book to complete this exam (do not guess). We strongly recommend printing the exam and recording your answers as you complete them. This exam is designed to be completed at your preferred pace. Your answers will be saved as you progress and you may stop and resume at any time. Once completed, please check your final Answer Sheet prior to submitting your answers.

LEVEL 1: 35 (or above) out of 50
LEVEL 2: 85 (or above) out of 100
LEVEL 3: 90 (or above) out of 100
LEVEL 4: 90 (or above) out of 100

If you do not pass the Open Book Exam, you will be granted access to a Re-take Exam seven days after your original exam was graded. The Re-Take Exam will be the exact same exam (the questions will be shuffled), therefore the USA Hockey National Office will not provide "missed questions".
