COVID-19 and Implications of Qualification Timescales
Whilst the situation with COVID-19 remains uncertain we are unable to provide any firm update regarding the expiry dates of written assessments and associated deadlines with Pre and Final Practical assessments. The NE Officiating group is currently undertaking a consultation as to what any potential extension will look like and further information will be shared once a decision is made. Please note however, the NE Officiating Group are looking to provide as much support and understanding to candidates and not place unnecessary barriers in the way of their progression. So any decisions made by NE will seek to ensure that we do not disadvantage umpires.
