All Local Swimming Committees (LSC) shall adopt these Standards for Certification of Officials which also, in part, include the basic steps listed at the right.
Officials join USA Swimming and are certified by the Local Swimming Committee (LSC) where they reside.

Register as an apprentice official (some LSCs do not offer this option and you must register as a full official to start). Once your training is completed, you will register and pay membership dues as a full official.
