Training will typically involve attendance at 1 to 3 sessions totaling 4 to 6 hours. The sessions will include training on rules, procedures, and equipment, with practice officiating. The training follows guidelines published by International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association (IPTPA.COM) . These trainees will be qualified to referee club tournaments as well as other tournaments in the area.
