OPEN BOOK EXAM GUIDELINES

  • USA Hockey Membership Registration as an Ice Hockey Official must be completed prior to accessing the online Open Book Exam.
  • Access to the OB Exam will be granted 24-hours after Membership Registration.
  • NEW OFFICIALS: We strongly recommend waiting for your USA Hockey Rule Book to arrive (after Membership Registration) before attempting to complete your exam.
  • It is recommended that all officials print a hard-copy of the exam, and write their USA Hockey Rule References and Answers on their hard-copy before entering their answers online.
  • Please check your answers carefully as you enter them online. An OB Exam cannot be "reset".
  • Once your answers are submitted, you will receive a Results Email within a few hours.
  • An official who "fails" their OB Exam will be allowed one (1) Re-take OB Exam.
  • The Re-take OB Exam will become available seven (7) days after the scoring of the original OB Exam, and is accessible through this webpage.
  • Once the Re-take OB Exam becomes available, the official has thirty (30) days to complete it.
  • The Re-take OB Exam will consist of the exact number of questions missed on the original OB Exam, and the official must answer enough questions correctly to bring their OB Exam Score up to a "passing grade".
