The AFL’s National Umpiring Accreditation Scheme is a training package for Australian Football umpires consisting of three tiers for field umpires and two tiers for both boundary and goal umpires.
The course is designed to introduce umpires to a range of modules and units to assist in the gaining of the knowledge and skills required to perform the tasks associated with umpiring Australian Football.
Under the National Umpiring Accreditation Scheme umpires are provided with the opportunity to acquire knowledge related to each discipline of umpiring. Umpire coaches will conduct coaching sessions that are interactive and practical with a clear focus on an individualised approach to the development of umpiring skills in the three disciplines of field, boundary and goal umpiring.

So you've achieved Level 1 accreditation and want more. Level 2 accreditation expands on Level 1 and is dicipline focused.
Join AFL Umpire Manager, Jeff Gieschen, and Wayne Schwass, media personality and former North Melbourne and Sydney Swans player, as they discuss the week that was in AFL umpiring. Using copyright footage from AFL matches, Gieschen and Schwass discuss difficult or controversial decisions with Gieschen providing background information or an in-depth explanation of the laws. Umpires may find each episode useful to improve their decision-making and general umpiring knowledge – regardless of their ability or discipline.
