About the Referee Development Clinic
The Referee Development Clinic will provide you with a broad understanding of the role, responsibilities, and duties of a referee, as well as refine your sense of right of way, timing, and application of the penalties.

Attending an official FOC-sanctioned clinic is a prerequisite for becoming a certified USA Fencing referee, along with successful completion of a written exam. Once a passing score (90%) has been achieved on the written exam (both the general section and one or more weapon-specific sections) a referee receives a rating of "P" in each weapon passed. Further rating improvements (1-10) can be obtained at a later date by being evaluated in a practical setting at tournaments.

Written Exams
The written test is now offered online and typically taken shortly following the clinic, though it may be taken in advance:

If you plan to sit the exam, please make sure that you have adequately prepared by going through the Study Guide:
