British Fencing Qualifications Level 1 & Level 2

Level 2 referee qualification for those who have  some experience and want to get a qualification. Perhaps to go further,  perhaps to just make sure they know the rules and to get ongoing support  from a mentor.

Level 1 introduction to refereeing for those who  want to understand what is going on. Have you ever wondered what all  that hand waving by the person in the middle means? Well this is the  place to find out. This is no longer a formal qualification but it is a  must for anyone who wants to understand the basics as spectator,  supporter or fencer. This basic knowledge is built on in Level 2.
