Club Umpire Course – this is a simple course that could be used by any club based field, boundary or goal umpires.
Umpire AFL Basic Guide DVD – this is a DVD and handbook that is in the “Green Shirt” pack.
Assessor Course – this is a simple course taking about an hour that will up skill any stakeholder to be able to critically assess umpires.
