Officials Training Requirements

Online Training

Officials are expected to complete training on an annual basis. This is available for all officials through an online training site provided by USA Volleyball. The training requirements will vary depending on the official’s experience and certification level.  See the next section to print a list of the required courses, depending on your certification level.

Officials should complete the appropriate items before officiating.  Please print the list of courses for your level from below before proceeding to the online training, as you will need to register for each of the individual courses this season.
