Tripoli Rocketry Association has released a new version of the Advanced Study Guide for those preparing to take the Level 2 Certification test. This new version addresses the changes made in the new Tripoli Unified Safety Code that was released in the latter half of 2022. This guide and its corresponding tests replace all previous versions and is effective immediately.

All prefects have been sent new tests which correspond to the new Unified Safety Code. If you are a member that has been studying the previous study guide during in preparation for the test, the old tests will be accepted through February 28th, 2023. It's important to let your prefect know if you are taking the older test.

The advanced study guide can be downloaded off of the Tripoli website.
 
thanks for letting us know about being able to take the older test. I have many hundreds of hours studying the old one so I need to get a hold of my local guy to see if he can meet me at a restaurant somewhere and let me take it, as the cold weather is not going to let me go to a launch anytime soon.

Looks very good. Thanks!

One small glitch, question #50 in the safety section has two possible "b" choices. And the correct answer is "b"! :)

What is new in the safety code?

The changes are not revolutionary. If you studied for the old test you should be able to pass the new test. No concepts have changed.
 
Bob, can TAPs get this? I'm not the prefect, but I do the bulk of the certifications.

if you never got any of the old tests as a TAP, you will not have the TMP test, the answer overlay and test sheets
these can be requested of HQ
 
Question #46 in the second study exam insists that the maximum launch angle from vertical for a model rocket is 30 degrees. I believe it is 20 degrees. Question #11 is correct at 20 degrees. I go to the Tripoli safety code and it says the maximum angle is 20 degrees for a rocket (not specifying model or high power)

Does anyone have any insight on this?

See 12-1 in the TUSC.
12-1A Model Rocket may not be launched more than 30° from vertical.

p.s. The questions and the answers are all in the L2 Study Guide, which includes references to the Tripoli Unified Safety Code (TUSC) so you can see exactly why the answer is right.

I see. Model rocket up to 30 degrees from vertical, high power rocket up to 20 degrees from vertical.
