Athlete Representative Educational Seminars and Exams


SEMINARS

The USATF Athlete Representative educational seminars are generally provided twice each year: once at the USATF Annual Meeting and once at the U.S. Outdoor Track & Field Championships (or Olympic Track and Field Team Trials during Olympic years).

The USATF Athlete Representative educational seminars usually last for approximately 4 hours and provide the latest information available from USATF’s High Performance department, USADA, IAAF, AAM, and others.

The USATF Athlete Representative exam preparation course is a mandatory three (3) hour course that offers additional study preparation for individuals who have applied and are currently registered to take the USATF Athlete Representative Exam.

NOTE: You must have an application on file or already be a USATF-authorized Athlete Representative in order to attend the educational seminars. No preregistration is necessary.

EXAM INFORMATION

IAAF EXAM

The IAAF is responsible for setting all dates associated with the IAAF Athlete Representative Exam. Please note, however, the IAAF only offers the exam in even numbered years (i.e. 2018, 2020, etc.).

The IAAF exam is a closed-book exam consisting of approximately 48 multiple choice questions and participants must score a 75 percent or higher to pass the exam.

The IAAF supplies the necessary materials for its exam in advance of the exam (they can also be found at: http://www.iaaf.org/aboutiaaf/structure/athlete
s/index.html)
.


USATF Exam

The examination will cover the Athlete – Agent Relationship, USATF Regulation 25, Elite Athlete Support Programs, Anti-Doping, and other issues relevant to athlete representation. It is a 50-question multiple-choice examination, has a time limit of two (2) hours and participants must score an 80 percent or higher to pass the exam. The exam is open book and prepared notes may be used while taking the exam.

USATF will provide a booklet to all new USATF Athlete Representative applicants prior to the USATF exam. Prior exam booklets can be found in the Resources Section (these books remain relatively the same from year to year).

The exam and prep course are administered in conjunction with the USATF Annual Meeting. The exam and prep course are administered each year after the application window has closed. Attendance at the exam prep course is mandatory.
