Umpire Courses Cricket Australia in partnership with State and Territory Cricket Associations are responsible for the delivery of umpire courses throughout Australia. Cricket Australia provide resources and learning opportunities to umpires across the country and are responsible for system delivery, online learning, modules and webinars while NT Cricket and NTCMOA support the face-to-face delivery of practical training sessions, Law Classes and local Seminars/Conventions. If you would like more information about the availability of umpiring courses across the Northern Territory, please contact NT Cricket at firstname.lastname@example.org Community Officiating The Community Officiating program is designed to engage and educate new officials and is appropriate for both experienced and novice participants, regardless of whether you have previous playing experience or not. The full accreditation program is made up of two components: on-line training and face to face practical sessions. The accreditation can be completed in any order, but to be fully accredited as a Community Official, both components must be completed. The on-line program takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete and the face to face session runs for approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours. The cost of the entire program is $40 and there is no prior learning required. Once you have completed the full program you will receive an accreditation certificate with your accreditation number. This accreditation is valid for four years and at the end of this period you may complete a reaccreditation course to continue holding the Community Officiating Accreditation. Representative Officiating Expectations of competence increase as you move through the umpiring pathway, so the Representative Officiating course is designed for the Match Official who wishes to move into higher levels of cricket. The Representative course provides upskilling on all aspects of the role. The course assesses knowledge of the current Laws of Cricket but is not an exam. The intent of the program is to reinforce what you know rather than test what you don’t know. The full course is made up of 4 components: On-line learning Face to face workshops Workbook modules Observations in match situations The time taken to complete the on-line course is excess of 2 hours and we recommend doing it in 2 or 3 sections to ensure full understanding of the content. The system will automatically bookmark where you have left the course. Following completion of the on-line learning you will receive a Participants Workbook which details the requirements for the workbook modules, face to face workshops and match observations. Cost of the program is $100 and a participant must have completed all of the requirements of the Community Officiating Accreditation Program to be able to register for Representative Officiating. Once you have completed the full accreditation program you will receive an accreditation certificate with you accreditation number. This accreditation is valid for four years and at the end of this period you may complete a reaccreditation course to continue holding the Representative Officiating Accreditation.
