The OREGON DIVISION is covering $25 of the seminar fee for OR Division members. If you are an OR Division member, pay only $50.

The written test is now offered online.

Please make sure that you have adequately prepared by going through the Study Guide:

Attending an official Referee Commission sanctioned clinic is a prerequisite for attempting the 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 ratings improvements (10-1) can be obtained at a later date by being evaluated in a practical setting at tournaments.

The lecture and question and answer format on Saturday will provide a broad understanding of the role, responsibilities, and duties of a referee. It is not a study group for test preparation. It is expected that participants will have read the study guide and come prepared with a willingness to learn how to be a better referee and fencer.

The cost of the clinic is $75/person. $50/Person for Oregon division members.
