First thing to do is contact your local examiner. The list below provides the details of all current EASB snooker examiners.
Once you have identified your nearest examiner please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request your email is forwarded to them.
Before you contact your local examiner purchase a rule book and familiarise yourself with the rules.
Once you have made contact with your local examiner he will arrange for you to attend a seminar. You may need to attend a number of seminars prior to taking an examination. The cost of the seminar is subject to local agreement with the examiner.
Once the examiner is satisfied that your knowledge of the rules is sufficient and you are confident of your level of knowledge a Snooker Referee Class 3 examination can be arranged. The examination is standardised and is purely knowledge of the rules.
If you pass the Snooker Referee Class 3 examination you can then register as a Class 3 referee with the EASB. You will then be referred to your local tutor who will advise you regarding your future personal development as a referee.
To progress as a referee you must attend at national EASB events where you will be assessed by one of the current EASB assessors. They will monitor your development and provide guidance should you wish to progress further.
