National Officiating Accreditation Program

[The following information dates before COVID-19 … at this time all face to face accreditation courses are on hold and we will update members as soon as the situation changes]

The Australian Jujitsu Federation Inc.

An accredited official has provided evidence to satisfy the membership criteria of the Federation. In addition he or she has successfully completed an approved accreditation course specific to our members. This course will have included: risk management, appropriate legislation, health and safety, and more.

Under the Federation’s accreditation program there are 4 Levels of accreditation. However, the first 2 levels are most common: Level 1 Administration, and Level 2 Judge/Referee.

The Australian Jujitsu Federation is the only recognised authority to provide and administer accreditation within the competitive martial arts of: Sport Jujitsu, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Grappling.

Each accredited official is issued a personal ID Card that includes details of their accreditation level and expiry date of their accreditation.
