Referee and Judges

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. AIBA currently has R&J Instructors, with plans to increase this number in order to maintain and create the best officials at all levels worldwide.
