2020 Mat Officials OEP Training

You must go to the Tournament Sign Up page to request attendance at an OEP. Be advised that you must also sign up for the tournament as these are considered separate requests.
The OEP sign up process does not replace the online tournament sign up. It is still mandatory to sign up for a National or Regional tournament. 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
