In January 2004, the ISA Executive Committee endorsed the full judging development program proposed by Surfing Australia.
This comprehensive judging program has been identified as the worlds’ best practice in the development of quality accredited officials.
The ISA are committed to the continued success of surfing as a sport worldwide and recognize the need for one accreditation course. The quality and credibility of every competition hinges on the education of our officials. International Judging and Officiating Courses are regularly being conducted throughout the ISA surfing World.
There are currently 18 countries that are our partners in World wide Judging development. The number is continuing to grow as many Surfing Associations and Federations realise the importance of parallel development of the officials and the sport.
All ISA courses and registration fees are budgeted to provide a financial return to all parties involved in preparation, administration and delivery.
