Most State Referee Committees host Entry Level Assessor training courses at least once a year, depending upon sufficient candidates to conduct a clinic. However, an assessor candidate who has been pre-approved by the Illinois SDA may attend an out of state assessor course at their own expense. Contact the ISRC office at the e-mail address above to find where out-of-state assessor clinics may be taking place.

Must recertify each year!
