AIBA R&J Certification Courses
Referees and Judges are a vital part of AIBA’s organization to help create a fair and safe atmosphere during competition. The aim of AIBA is to always maintain a high standard of officiating, offer the best possible education, and to create a pathway to develop officials at a global standard.
