The National Bench Officials Accreditation Framework provides detailed information about bench officials accreditation and updating.
Accreditation updating requires the completion of various related tasks within a 4 year period following the successful completion of a Bench Officials Accreditation, unless a higher level of accreditation is achieved.
We’ve changed the way our accreditation updates work, making it easier for our coaches, umpires and bench officials. Find out more here.
If a Bench Official does not update their accreditation within the specified four year period, Netball Australia may:
- require the official to re-do the entire training program; or
- require the official to undertake a specified number of activities as determined by Netball Australia.
