34 / SEPTEMBER.OCTOBER.2021 USICERINKS.COM u.s. ice rink NEWS Updates from the United States Ice Rink Association CIT Classes of 2020 and 2021: It's time to recertify! All Certified Ice Technicians (CIT) expir- ing in 2021 must complete a CIT Recer- tification (CITR) exam by the end of the year to remain current. Due to suspending in-person courses and exam opportunities in 2020, and limited 2021 exam locations, we are now offering an online exam option that provides the opportunity for CIT's to self-study and write the CITR exam utilizing an online proctor each month. Those seeking CIT recertification must maintain an annual membership (Individual, Facility, or Vendor) with the United States Ice Rink Association to keep their professional certification valid. Available exam dates can be found at usicerinks.com under the 'Education' tab followed by the 'Locations/Registration' tab. Contact John Monteleone with questions at johnm@usicerinks.com.
