USIndoor's Certified Arena Operator Program is a must for anyone serious about running an indoor sports facility or in having a career in recreational sports management. With emphasis on day-to-day management, the CAO Program is the industry's only professional credential. Lead by respected industry leaders and academicians in their areas of expertise, this intensive two-day program includes lectures, panel discussions, audience participation, written materials and an exam. Besides a new title, attendees leave the program with measurable skills and knowledge essential for the general manager position. For facility owners, the Program also offers a means to improve the quality of existing staff, keep up with industry trends, and make better hiring decisions.
The CAO course takes place each year in conjunction with USIndoor's annual Facility Operators' Conference and Trade Show. Annual recertification is subject to additional requirements consisting of an annual certification fee and continuing educational units, which may be earned in a variety of ways, including attending the Conference, participating in USIndoor's educational seminar series, writing articles or giving lectures.
