The new version features revised course material, a new didactic design, an update to the technology used with a responsive design, pages that load quicker and further improvements like a search tool. It has been adapted to the 2014 Rules, which came from the FIVB Congress in Sardinia, the 2015 Casebook and the 2015 Referee Guidelines and Instructions.
Furthermore the resource is now available on all devices; computer, tablets, smartphones and on all standard operating systems; Apple, Windows and Android.
Despite the FIVB Referee Online Course serving as a supporting tool, referees, line judges, scorers and referee delegates will still have to participate in workshops and courses in person, though the system will play an important role in the lead up to the start of the volleyball season.
By harmonising knowledge levels and providing a centralised source of information and training, the aim is for the online courses to help to shape how volleyball is organised across the five continental confederations.
