In 2024, the IRO will be launching a simple two-stage initiative to become a referee. We don’t believe in overcomplicated levels and ranks. A mixture of self-paced learning, written examination, practical demonstrations/exams and hands-on refereeing as part of the overall assessment.

Step 1: Obtain your accreditation in “International Eightball Rules“.

Step 2: Obtain your certification in “Refereeing“.

Details of how to become a certified referee will appear here shortly.
