New Requirement - mus be Certified Official to Compete

Postby jenb » Tue Mar 22, 2011 7:16 am

The PDGA FAQ says:

Certified Official's Exam
Common questions and answers about the Certified Official's Exam

Who has to take the PDGA Certified Officials Exam?
Tournament Directors of PDGA Sanctioned events are required to be a Certified Official. Starting in 2011 passing the Official's Exam is now required for all amateurs and professional competitors playing in a National Tour Elite Series or PDGA Major event.

Has this requirement gone into effect already? Is it being enforced?

I have to ask because I noticed a lot of people competed in an M tournament this past weekend who aren't PDGA members, so how can they be certified officials? What's going on? Did they have to join, but the membership is just not listed as current yet?

I saw a post by Houck that they were taking care of it or groups weren't playing. So if you saw them play, they had passed the test and were current.
