FIVB Refereeing Courses
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.)
Individuals interested in attending an FIVB Refereeing Course should contact John Cheadle as applications to attend any of these courses must be endorsed by the AVF for Australian referees.
Referees interested in gaining International Referee accreditation should note relevant age limits apply:
- Volleyball - Be between 20 and 40 years of age (inclusive) at time of attending the International Referee Candidate Course
- Beach Volleyball - Must be between 20 and 40 years of age (inclusive) in the year in which the International Referee Candidate Course is attended.
