As happens every year, the officials’ online tests will be unavailable from April 15-30, 2018Tests will be back online on May 1. All of these tests are being updated to allow for the May 1st rule changes and to align with the 2018 Rulebook

If any test-takers have not completed their tests by April 14th, the UNCOMPLETED tests will be deleted on April 15th and they will have to be taken over from the beginning on May 1st. COMPLETED tests will not be deleted. 

Test-takers can see all their online tests (completed and incomplete) by logging in to their account, navigating to the online testing page and then clicking on “start an online test”. From there, they will see a screen with all prior tests listed.

In order to use this test site, you need to have a USA Swimming website user account. If you already have a website account on, you will need to log in to that account to take your test(s). Use the sign in link in the upper right corner to log in.
NOTE: Please make sure the account you are using is not linked to your child's USA Swimming member record. If you had set up a Deck Pass account to access a child's information, you will need to create a new separate account for yourself that is linked to your own USA Swimming member record.
If you don't already have a USA Swimming website account, create an account first ("sign in" upper right corner and follow steps to create an account) and then navigate back to this page to take your test(s).
Note that any test you start and do not complete by 4/14/2018 will be automatically deleted on 4/15/2018 in order to make updates to the tests to coincide with the 2018 Rulebook. COMPLETED tests (from any year) will not be deleted, just incomplete ones.
