Following the recent decision of the FIE Executive Committee adopting the proposal for the Confederations to pre-qualify and pre-train referees who will be accepted to take the FIE Referees seminar and exam, all candidates must possess a C License given by the FCA.
In preparation therefore for the next FIE Refereeing seminar and exam next year, the FCA will conduct its third C-License Referees seminar and exam this year.
The Asian C-License Referees seminar and exam will be held in Bangkok Thailand on September 5 to 7, 2017. This event will be in all three weapons (Foil, Epee, and Saber), and will be conducted by Dr. Eyad Maghayreh and Mr. KIM Chang Gon, who are the FCA Referees Commission Chairman and the FIE Referees Commission Member, respectively.
Two such activities were held in 2016, the first being in Dammam Saudi Arabia and the second in Tokyo Japan.
