Course Description

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of IAABO, the greatest basketball officiating organization in the world!  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 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.

Upon successful registration and payment for the course, you will have immediate access. If you have any problems after registering,  please contact Joe Gabriel ( Once again, thank you for your interest in IAABO and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you as a member soon.
