The Fencing Confederation of Asia (FCA) will be holding the next Refereeing C Licence Seminar and Exam in Dubai, UAE from 14 to 17 December 2017. The C Licence qualification is the first step on the pathway to international refereeing accreditation.

This seminar and exam is the last opportunity for aspiring referees to earn their C Licence before the next FIE Referees Exam in the Asia/Oceania zone, which is scheduled to be held in Dubai in February 2018 (in conjunction with the Asian Cadet & Junior Championships).

The AFF may nominate one candidate for each weapon to participate in the Seminar and Exam. Expressions of interest should be sent to the AFF at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Candidates are required to pay their own travel and accommodation expenses, but may be provided with a partial subsidy depending on the applications received.

Referees who are interested in obtaining their FIE licence should be aware that the FIE has introduced a new rule which effectively requires referees to participate in the international circuit in order to maintain their accreditation.

The new rule provides that referees will be removed from the approved list at the end of the second season in which they have not refereed in an offical FIE competition. To be reinstated, a referee must re-sit the practical refereeing exam or (on the second occasion) the full exam.
