2015 Tdm Quiz

For 2015, Officials seeking Referee Certification will be required to pass a short 10 question quiz about Tournament Data Manager (TDM). TDM is used Tournament Directors, Organizers, and Referees to run USTA Sanctioned events throughout the nation. In order to attend a Referee School you will be asked to provide proof that you have answered at least 9 of 10 questions. You will have 2 chances to pass. Once you pass a certificate will be displayed and emailed to you which you can bring with you to class as proof. All the answers to the questions are available in a 50 minute webinar that was recorded back when the system was first launched.
