The Federation Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) deliver a range of courses for referees. The purpose of these is to prepare and develop national and international referees by improving and updating knowledge and competence of the rules. Courses delivered by FIVB fall into three categories:

  • National Referee Courses
  • International Referee Candidate Courses 
  • Refresher Courses

(Please note: The quality of the referee education program in Australia is such that Australian referees do not engage in FIVB National Referee Courses.)
