Once the Touring Pros for a given year are calculated they are sent an email with information on how to take the Official's Exam free of charge. If you didn't receive this email please contact the PDGA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (706) 261-6342.
The PDGA Certified Officials Exam will be an on-line examination, and will be available at pdga.com in early January 2011. It will be initially offered in English, and will become available in other languages as our international partners complete the translation of the 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.
