The Racing Officials Accreditation Program (ROAP), which accredits and provides continuing education to all racing officials, stewards, and judges in racing, will hold its annual accreditation school for stewards and judges at California's Los Alamitos Race Course from Sept. 11-18. The course, which includes 60 hours of schooling, provides classroom instruction as well as time shadowing officials. Curriculum covers both Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing, as well as harness racing. The accreditation school is open to all applicants who meet and complete the registration requirements by Aug. 12.

In addition, in association with Chippewa Downs, ROAP will also hold a certificate course at the Sky Dancer Resort and Casino in North Dakota May 13-14. This course, which is open to the public and has no charge, consists of general racing industry education geared toward those interesting in becoming racing officials. There will be job-specific modules for the racing official positions of clerk of scales, horse identifier, paddock judge, placing judge, outrider, and starter/assistant starter.
