In accordance with Rules TR 3.00, 4.01 and 4.02, skaters may now receive US Figure Skating test credit by meeting certain minimum PCS, TES and TSS scores at any U.S. competition held under the International Judging System (IJS). The athlete must “skate-up” and compete in the event for which they are seeking test credit, in addition to having already passed any prerequisites prior to the competition event.

For example, if an individual junior-level freestyle skater seeks senior-level freestyle test credit via IJS protocol, he or she must enter an IJS competition as a senior-level skater and meet the minimum PCS, TES and TSS requirements for senior-level test credit during that competition. Entering a junior-level event will not suffice in this example, regardless of score.

The deadline for submitting IJS protocols for test credit in the 2019-20 qualifying season is September 1, 2019.
