Eventing officials include judges, technical delegates (TD), and course designers (CD). They are licensed by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) at the 'r', 'R', and 'S' levels and by the FEI at the FEI levels.

The USEA Training Programs for Eventing Officials (TPEO) is for members who wish to become licensed officials or those who wish to further their education but not necessarily pursue licensure with the Federation. The USEA also conducts Continuing Education Clinics (CEC) for members who are already licensed officials. Anyone may attend the ‘r’, ‘R’, or ‘S’ dressage, cross-country/jumping, or course designer TPEO or CEC.

Attendance at a Continuing Education Clinic is part of the requirement to maintain an active license status as an eventing official. Clinics must be attended at least once every three years from the date the license is granted, but officials may attend more frequently if they wish.
