How does it work?

Our accreditation updates work on a points system. So, when you’re updating your accreditation you need to make sure you’ve reached the relevant number of points within four years of gaining your current accreditation.

When is the best time to apply for an accreditation update?

You can only apply for an update within six months of your current accreditation expiry date. Netball Learning will prompt you.

Do I need to have anything on hand?

When you’re updating your accreditation, it’s a good idea to have a list of any practical coaching, umpiring or bench officiating activities on hand. 

I’m not sure how to update my accreditation.
