Cricket Umpires Australia

Get Involved

Community Officiating homepage


Cricket Australia is pleased to announce a new entry level on-line umpire training program titled Community Officiating. It replaces the previous level 1 Accreditation model and is available via the Match Officials page on the CA website.

We’re pleased to invite you to be among the first to complete this new program. The cost to register is only $40.00, however all current holders of a Cricket Australia Umpire Accreditation, both level 1 & level 2, can access the new training program free of charge.

This on-line training will change the way that CA engages potential new officials and is appropriate for both experienced and novice candidates, regardless of whether they have previous playing experience or not. The course can be accessed when you want, via your PC or laptop, and from the comfort of your own home.

It should take approximately 1 hour to complete; slightly longer for those unfamiliar with cricket terminology. Please note a resource tab within the program provides access to the Laws of Cricket, fielding positions chart and other cricket jargon to enable all participants to gain the knowledge to undertake the umpiring role with a greater degree of confidence.

CA trusts that you will enjoy this training and thanks you in advance for helping to support Australia’s favourite sport.
