    You want to contact the ECB Officials Association (used to be called the ACU&S).

    http://www.ecb.co.uk/ecb/ecb-associa...ket-officials/

    They can tell you about courses and the like.

    In case anyone else was interested

    I am going to partake the new ECB ACO Level 1 Course in January

    Start umpiring this summer

    And then do the BTEC course from October - Internationally approved one.

    The Sky's the limit!

    Never knew that you could do a BTEC in cricket umpiring. Or is it just general sports officiating?

    It's in cricket umpiring - tis a new scheme which has hit Oxfordshire in the last few months: we are using the graduates/trainees/students as umpires in the District festival (or at least planning to, I think).

    Yes you can. SMWW can be handy for you. I know their sales person Gaurav Kamboj and he can be really helpful.

    Contact them and see if you can get some information from them.

    How did this course go? Have you started umpiring in any high profile club matches?
