Referee Examiners

Click here for the BF Examiner’s Register January 2020

Please note that following the roll out of the new Level 3 examination and assessment process, any existing examiner that wishes to exam or assess at Level 3 will need to register to attend a Level 3 examiner’s seminar.

The Level 4 exam process is run in conjunction with a mock FIE exam for those candidates due to take their FIE exams, with international FIE referees acting as examiners.


How to become a Referee Examiners

Referees that wish to become L1 and 2 examiners should hold a weapon specific referee qualification at that level or above and will be consistently active as a referee on the domestic circuit.  they will then need to approach their Home Country Association who will inform BF.

Once accepted onto the register those holding L1&2 will be able to assist a more senior examiner but not examine as an independent examiner. BF will supply the newly appointed examiners with an “examiner’s pack” of documentation for use when running a referee exam.

All appointments are for a 3-year tenure and subject to an activity and competency review throughout this period. BF are committed to running regular examiners seminars to ensure that examiners are maintaining their level of competency.
