Following on from the recent announcement of the first batch of successfully certified Level 1: Umpiring Fundamentals participants, USA Cricket is pleased to announce that registration for a second cohort of the course is now open.
In an effort to streamline both the registration and delivery of the course, participants are now able to register themselves by creating an account on the Moodle platform, and then signing up for the relevant course modules through the ‘Site Home’ tab on their Moodle dashboard.
To further democratize access to learning materials USA Cricket have made all theory modules open and free to access for all aspiring umpires. However, to sit the online exam and qualify for your Level 1 Certificate you must pay the $75 fee.
