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 four year period following the successful completion of a Bench Officials Accreditation, unless a higher level of accreditation is achieved.
Coaches, umpires and bench officials can manage their accreditation and courses through your MyNetball account. More detailed information about Bench Official Accreditation updating criteria can be found 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 programme; or
- require the official to undertake a specified nu,ber of activities as determined by Netball Australia
