Effective Sunday, September 1st, 2013, all Certified Race Directors must complete and pass a background screening in order to recertify in 2013.
As of January 1st, 2014, all race directors that complete the Level 1 and Level 2 Certification course must go through and pass the background screening in order to become certified. Thereafter, any currently Certified Level 1 and Level 2 Race Director that recertifies must complete and pass a background screening.
Every USAT Certified Race Director has to make one of three choices about continuing in the program:
1. Continue to advance within the program by moving to Level 2
2. Continue within the program without advancing via Recertification
3. Discontinue participation in the program
The first two choices require action. Choice 3 assumes no activity and the formerly certified participant will be dropped from the formal program. Their records will be maintained in the USAT archives.
