Judges Course Exemptions

Some candidates may be eligible for an exemption from attending the beginner and/or a higher level of judges course. 

Click HERE If you wish to apply for an exemption using the the Judges Course Exemption Form.

When submitting a judges course exemption we ask that you please allow sufficient time for your application to be assessed by the relevant sports management committee (SMC). We recommend submitting exemption applications 2 weeks prior to the closing date of the course. Your judges course application form can only be accepted and processed once the exemption application is approved.

Hint & Tips:
  • Give detailed information on why you believe you hold the skill set to be exempt from the beginner/higher judges course. 
  • Where possible supply evidence to support your application.
  • Consider your age and experience. For example, if applying for an exemption from the beginner course, and you wish to gain an intermediate accreditation, it would be expected that an intermediate judge could act as the head judge on a panel. This requires maturity and strong inter-personal skills. 
  • Access to a mentor who holds a high level of judging accreditation and regularly judges would be advantageous.
  • Athletes/ex athletes do not automatically receive exemption from the beginner judges course. It is necessary to detail additional information, as listed above and on the application form.
