I, the undersigned, understand that materials used for HOSA competitive events testing are confidential. I hereby agree to maintain the confidentiality of all testing and skill materials and understand that the security of testing materials, secret topics, and event skills are maintained by protecting all items from loss, unauthorized access and sharing, or reproduction. In order to maintain the integrity of the testing and competitive process, I further understand the following:
• Advisors are not allowed to enter/observe an event (other than their assigned event) at any time for any reason. • Advisors are required to protect the confidentiality of event secret topics and skills throughout the conference and are not allowed to reveal the required skills or secret topic until the competitor is personally competing. • Maintaining test item security prohibits any advisor or test proctor from: o unauthorized printing or photocopying of any test items or materials o allowing unauthorized pictures to be taken of tests or skills o accessing or removing test materials from the secure locations o allowing students to access events at times other than their scheduled testing time o allowing advisors and others to view test content
