Recruiting New Officials

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of IAABO Board 53,  All IAABO Board 53 Classes are now online but if you have questions before signing up and would like to talk to someone from Board 53, please contact us below.


Our online course consists of twenty (20) video lessons and quizzes along with two (2) practice exams aimed at preparing you to successfully complete the IAABO applicant exam. While passing the exam does not assure that you will be an outstanding official, rules knowledge is one of the most important attributes of all successful officials. The cost of the course is $50, which includes access to the course and the use of a digital version of the IAABO Rules Guide and Manual. Upon successful completion of the course and exam, you will be eligible to join a local IAABO Board, subject to any additional dues and requirements of that Board.

After you have completed all twenty lessons, you will be able to take the IAABO applicant exam. You will have sixty (60) minutes to complete the 50-question final exam. You must earn a score of 80 or better (40 or more correct answers) to pass this exam. This is a self-paced course with a 3 month window from the time you register, to complete the course and the exam.

If you have any difficulties, after registering and payment, please contact Once again, thank you for your interest in IAABO and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you as a member soon.
