IAC Judge Examinations



IAC Judges and Candidate Judges take written and oral examinations to become Regional Judges, National Judges, and to maintain currency as a Judge.  You will find exams and quizzes here, with explanations regarding which exams are current and relevant for your status as a Judge or Judge Candidate.

Which Exam to Take?

Are working towards your first certification as an IAC Regional Judge?  Candidates can view online training and take the Judge Knowledge Quizzes below to confirm their understanding of the material and receive credit towards completion of the Introduction to IAC and the Aresti Language training.

IAC Regional Judges are certified to judge flights at all IAC sanctioned Regional Contests. To become a Regional Judge, one of the requirements is to pass the Regional Judge Exam below.  This is usually accomplished after completing the Introduction to IAC and the Aresti Language training, and the Practical Aerobatic Judging training (see IAC Policy & procedures 214 additional requirements).

IAC National Judge certification is required to serve at IAC sanctioned national contests (i.e. U.S. National Aerobatic Championships) grading/scoring flights, as well being the first choice to serve as a Chief Judge at IAC sanctioned Regional Contests.  To become a National Judge, one of the requirements is to pass the National Judge Exam below (see IAC Policy & Procedures 214 for additional requirements).

Are you already a certified IAC judge?  Each year, before serving as an aerobatic Judge at a contest, previously certified Judges must pass the Revalidation and Currency (R&C) Exam. Successfully accomplishing this exam is one of the requirements to be named on the IAC Official List of Judges (see IAC Policy & Procedures 214 for additional requirements).  This exam is best taken with a current copy of the IAC Official Contest Rules at hand.

Taking an exam - The exams can be started and the questions viewed online using the Next, Leave Blank, and Back buttons that are presented below each question.  You can also leave the exam after viewing the questions and videos and come back later.  Individuals who prefer to prepare their answers offline and then enter them after reviewing the rulebook can make use of this feature.  When a session is left and returned to, answers are not saved.  The exam answers are not final and a score is not calculated until the last question's  Finish button is clicked on.
