Returning officials who are registering for Level 2, 3 and 4 are required to attend a single virtual classroom session. Sessions are scheduled to last 2-3 hours and multiple sessions will be offered on weekday evenings in August, September and October. For Level 2, 3 and 4, optional ice sessions will be held on August 8, September 13 and October 3. Level 2 officials are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to attend an ice session.
 
Closed book exams for Level 2, 3 and 4 officials will be conducted via an online platform that is being developed by USA Hockey. Officials will take the exam online and will be required to finish the exam in one sitting. Officials will receive instructions via email from USA Hockey after completion of their virtual seminar.
 
Level 1 seminars will be conducted in three parts: two virtual classroom sessions (held on weekday evenings) and one mandatory, in-person off-ice/on-ice clinic held on August 8, September 13 or October 3. Level 1 officials are REQUIRED to attend both virtual classroom sessions and the in-person off-ice/on-ice clinic.
 
All virtual classroom sessions will be held via Zoom videoconference, with access details emailed to seminar registrants approximately 60 minutes prior to each session.
 
All in-person events will adhere to state, county, local, and rink safety guidelines. Additional information and a separate link to register for ice-sessions will be provided during virtual seminars.
 
A $10 per member seminar administration fee will be collected by MIHOA. This fee has been $20 in the past several years and was as much as $70 at one time. This fee is implemented to defray the expenses of conducting the online virtual classrooms, ice sessions, and other related expenses.
