Many professions use certification as a way to confirm that individuals have received a certain level of training and education related to their work.
USA Cycling has implemented a certification program for race directors for the same purpose. New race directors can benefit from basic information related to permitting processes and event management best practices. Experienced race directors can learn new information to improve or enhance their events. The certification status can help establish credibility with government authorities, landowners, sponsors, event partners and participants.
