To update an ‘on court’ umpire accreditation an umpire must:
- Attain a higher level badge; or
- Attend at least one professional umpire education unit (Theory Examination [Section I or II] Rules in Action or Umpire Course [Level 1 or Level 2]) within six years of obtaining a badge.
To update as a Tester and/or Presenter (if no longer ‘on court’) an umpire is required to attend one professional umpire education unit (Theory Examination [Section I or II] Rules in Action or Umpire Course [Level 1 or Level2]) every six years.
Umpires must notify the relevant Member Organisation when they have undertaken updating activity and pay any fee required to re-accredit. An experienced umpire, regardless of badge level, who is returning to umpiring, may update as above. However, in accordance with normal practice, umpire appointments will be performance based.
Netball Victoria requires all Umpires to complete the Umpire Accreditation Update Notification Form.
Please email or post the form with all relevant support documentation to Netball Victoria at PO Box 60, North Melbourne 3051.
