ICC Europe Level 1 Qualification

This is your first step to attaining an internationally recognised umpiring qualification.

Having attended a swissFOCUS entry level introduction to umpiring course is a requisite.

This is the first international level of umpire qualification and  ICC Europe has worked closely with the England & Wales Cricket Board Association of Cricket Official s (ECB ACO) to design this course.

The premise behind the syllabus for this course is that the umpire is taught those Laws that are of a practical nature and limited to one-day & limited over cricket.

ICC Europe Level 1a Qualification

This qualification is aimed at those umpires who aspire to the top level of their league structure and aspire to be nominated for the ICC European Panel.
This is a follow-up course to the Level 1 and is a discussion style course that explores the knowledge and experiences that the umpire has gained from passing Level 1 and umpiring matches. The Laws covered are those from the Level 1, but the emphasis is on student participation, rather than tutor led lectures.
