A person starting out to be an official is automatically placed at the apprentice level. After earning training points, officiating
a minimum number of games, passing a written test, being recommended by their mentor, and passing an evaluation, they can be promoted to the intermediate
level. Usually this takes about two years.
To be promoted to the varsity level requires another written test, attending a summer camp, a minimum number of games and varsity level games, another
evaluation and approval by the EFOA board of directors. Usually this takes an additional three or more years.
