All International Officials are encouraged to take part in the Officials Seminar as often as possible to increase their knowledge.
 

National Officials are welcome to attend. If they pass their Senior Judge or International Official exam in the same year, their attendance at the Seminar is valid for 3 years.

E&A JUDGE AND SENIOR jUDGE (3 EVENT) RE-QUALIFICATION

E&A Judges and Senior Judges (3-event) must take a test at least every 3 years at the Seminar to maintain their status. This will be a practical test, which may also include theoretical questions as needed.

Federations wishing to host the Seminar should apply in writing to the E&A TC who will, as far as is possible, announce dates and venues at least two years in advance of each Seminar.
 

The venue should move around the Confederation, offering an equal chance to officials from all countries to attend. This will be taken into account when allocating Seminar venues.
 

The date should be in spring or autumn of any year.
