To finish the procedure of becoming a licensed FIVB volleyball agent, you need to pass a test. But, there are some rules for participating in it. Using simple words, the Agents’ test is not for everyone.
To be eligible to participate in the Agents’ test, an applicant:
b) May not hold a position in the FIVB, a Confederation, a NF or a Club;
c) May not be in any way involved, either personally or through third persons, in a NF or a Club;
d) May not be a referee or line judge or scorer table official;
e) May not have been convicted of a serious crime;
f) Shall deposit with the FIVB a guarantee for compliance with these Regulations during his activities, in the amount of CHF 5,000; and
g) Shall pay to FIVB the annual registration fee of CHF 1,000.
The Applicant shall file with the FIVB a written application and necessary supporting documentation using the template application form (Appendix A - Application form for FIVB Agent's license test. You can find it here, page 8.). The Applicant shall send a copy of the application and supporting documentation to his Federation of Origin. The FIVB shall organize an Agents’ test for Applicants at least once a year.
THE AGENTS’ TEST SHALL INCLUDE:
- A written examination on the content of the following regulations:
FIVB Sports Regulations (Chapters 1, 9 and 10)
FIVB Medical and Anti-Doping Regulations (Chapter A)
- If deemed necessary by FIVB, an interview of the Applicant by a person appointed by the FIVB.
Based on the documentation submitted by the Applicant, his performance at the Applicant’s test and the opinion (if any) of his Federation of Origin, the FIVB may at its sole discretion decide to grant or refuse the License.
Within a month from the Applicant’s test, the FIVB shall notify its decision to the Applicant, to his Federation of Origin and to all the Confederations. In the event the FIVB decides to grant the License, the FIVB shall send to the Applicant his personal identification card as “FIVB Licensed Agent”.
The License is personal and non-transferable. The License is valid as of the date it is granted or renewed and expires on 31st December of the year of the Summer Olympics.
