Umpires, your umpiring accreditation is managed by Cricket Australia. Previously accredited umpires will be asked to do reaccreditation each 4 years.
Accreditation gives you recognition for your umpiring qualifications and puts you in touch with resources to maintain your knowledge and skills in cricket umpiring throughout Australia. Accredited umpires are better for cricket and provide confidence to players in their umpires.
Note: Accredited umpires are insured for accident and legal liabilities arising from mishaps at cricket matches to which they are officially appointed.
Relevant to QSDCA there are 2 levels of Accreditation (there are other levels for elite cricket.)
- Community Officiating (similar to the old “level 1”)
- Representative Officiating (similar to the old “level 2”)
