b) The candidate must be recommended by his provincial president or secretary or referee's chairperson.
c) The candidate must have refereed at least one provincial powerlifting championship and four or more powerlifting contests within a two year period before the next national AGM.
d) The candidate must achieve a passing score of 90% or more in the written and practical exam.

f) The practical exam must be administered by at least one IPF referee on the jury. Other adjudicating referees may be of national rank. During the practical exam, there must be a minimum of 100 attempts to be tested. If necessary, the practical exam may be spread over more than one session of the same championships with the same IPF adjudicator.

 Applying to Referee at an International Competition


If an international referee wishes to apply to referee at an international contest or championships, they need to apply to the CPU Officiating Chairman using the form Refereeing at an International Competition.

Due to the restrictions in funding, the CPU will fund a maximum of two referees per competition as the budget will allow. Please use THIS FORM to apply for funding.

Priority will be given to those referees who are in the last year of their four year mandate and need a competition to maintain their status.

All referees applying will be on a first come first serve basis.

When applying, the deadline registration will be ninety days before the first day of the competition.

When upgrading from National to Category II, or Category II to Category I, please refer to the IPF Technical Rules, page 28, #19 and #20.

National Referees that have been approved by the CPU Officiating Chairperson, and want to apply for their Category II, must apply within ninety days. This also includes upgrading from Category II to Category I.
