2022 Technical Panel Training & Testing Sessions

This page provides information on the 2022 Technical Panel Training & Testing being held in conjunction with the 2022 U.S. International Figure Skating Classic, Sept. 14-16, 2022, in Lake Placid, New York, in singles, pairs, ice dance and data. The deadline to apply is Sunday, July 17, 2022.

SCHEDULE

The Technical Panel Training Subcommittee of U.S. Figure Skating will be hosting Technical Panel Training & Testing in singles, pairs, ice dance and data in conjunction with the 2022 U.S. International Figure Skating Classic, Sept. 14-16, 2022, in Lake Placid, New York.

All sessions will offer classroom sessions as well as pencil and paper calling during live events. In addition to offering continuing education, testing will be offered for those who already hold a nonqualifying, regional or sectional appointment in singles, pairs, ice dance, or data who are approved to test for promotion. We are not able to offer testing for initial certification in any discipline. Please note that our ability to hold each school is dependent on having a sufficient number of approved applicants.

Please note that we recommend holding off on booking flights until you are officially accepted. If you choose to book your flights earlier, U.S. Figure Skating will not be responsible for any change fees you may incur if you are not accepted, or if we don’t receive enough applications to hold the training and testing.

WHO CAN ATTEND

The schools are open to technical controllers, technical specialists and data operators already holding a technical panel appointment in singles, pairs and/or ice dance as well as those who tested at the 2022 National Technical Panel Seminar in Chicago who didn’t receive an initial appointment. Applicants will be notified of acceptance following the deadline, and after all applications have been evaluated. Space is limited, and acceptance is not guaranteed.
