Oman has held its first Level II Umpiring Course. 33 candidates from the Gulf region attended the four-day program in Muscat, conducted by ACC Resource Personnel Bomi Jamula and Mahboob Shah. “I was pleased to see the high level of successful passes,” says ACC Development Manager Bandula Warnapura.

Of the candidates, including Mrs. Monir Habibi of Iran, 24 achieved outright passes (a score of 75 or more out of 100). They will be issued certificates after six months, once their respective Associations confirm that they are actively umpiring. Seven further candidates scored over 65 and they will have to go through another Level II program but will be allowed to umpire junior ACC matches in the interim if needed.

Qatar also completed a Level 0 Umpiring Course for 17 attendees in July.
