Referee Training

The TPF will hold regular training courses for those interested in becoming certified Powerlifting referees. Quality referees are essential for quality competitions and becoming a referee can be very beneficial to both coaches and athletes as it will give you a deep insight into the rules of competition.

Currently, we will be running Level 1 courses. For the Level 1 Referee Course, it will be a two-part series with part one taking place at the JCW Events Conference Room in the Ascott Sathorn Bangkok and part two, which will be the practical element taking place at an upcoming live competition.

Topics covered in the Level 1 Referee Course;

  • Thai Powerlifting referee levels
  • Referee roles & responsibilities
  • Competitions through the eyes of a referee
  • Competition performance standards
  • Roles and competition day responsibilities for every referee

Upon completion of the course, each attendee will be officially recognized and certified as a Level 1 Thai Powerlifting Federation Referee! ALSO, please note that we will be PAYING our referees 500 THB per session whenever needed for a competition!
