Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of IAABO, the greatest basketball officiating organization in the world!  Our online courses consists of  video lessons 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 courses are listed below. Upon successful completion of a course and exam you will be eligible to join an IAABO Board, subject to any additional dues and requirements of that Board.

Each lesson consists of a video with an instructor led PowerPoint presentation followed with a practice quiz designed to provide you with a foundation of knowledge of the rules. For your convenience, the course content is outlined in the details of each course. We strongly recommend you take the course in the order provided, but the format presented will allow you to return to a topic for further review.

After you have completed all of the 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 fail the exam on your first attempt there will be 30 day waiting/review period before you are allowed to retest.

Upon successful registration and payment for the course, you will be able to immediately access the online course. If you have any difficulties, after registering and payment, please contact info@iaabo.org  Once again, thank you for your interest in IAABO and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you as a member in the near future.

Before you enroll in IAABO University, you must contact Donnie Eppley @ deppley@iaabo.org to ensure that the IAABO Board in your area is participating in IAABO University. If the board is not participating, you may still enroll, but must understand that the local IAABO Board is under no obligation to admit you as a member and may require you to take the local rules course.
