Race Director Recertification

A race director's certification will last two years, the expiration date will always be on 12/31 and not on the date of the original accreditation. Every USAT Certified Race Director has to make one of three choices about continuing in the program:

  1. Continue to advance within the program by moving to Level 2
  2. Continue within the program without advancing via Level 1 Recertification
  3. Discontinue participation in the program

The first two choices require action. Choice 3 assumes no activity and the formerly certified participant will be dropped from the formal program. Their records will be maintained in the USAT archives.
