All ICC Foundation Modules are competency based. They describe the behaviours that you need to demonstrate in order to be accredited. The evidence of successfully demonstrating theses behaviour may be:
- Observational: as observed, and noted, by a National Umpire Manager appointed coach
- Video-based: video evidence of your behaviours demonstrated in a match
- A combination of observation and video-based evidence

You must successfully demonstrate:
|Your ability to use Information Technology, including operating a computer to communicate fully, and effectively, with ICC
ICC expects its umpires to be internet and IT literate. To be an international umpire, you need to be able to work remotely and communicate through email. We expect every umpire officiating in an international match to be able to…
• Send and receive emails from their own account (emails to be dealt with daily)
• Operate a personal computer (PC) / laptop (within the recommended specifications)
• Use MS Office (Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint)
• Use and operate Skype (with own Skype ID)
• Use and operate the ICC MIDS and SharePoint sites
• Use the internet to access data via the ICC OneDrive site
• Download and upload files
• Create documents and email or upload to FTP drop boxes
• Manage their virtual desktop and electronic filing system
• Complete and show the ICC Assessor you can perform all the computer tasks outlined in the ‘Computer Skills’ document file.
ICC also expects umpires to keep an external hard drive to store video footage of their umpiring and decision-making.
As an international umpire, you will be expected to make presentations to other groups from time to time. This is a way of sharing your knowledge and experience with others –you will therefore be expected to be able to operate computer equipment as part of your work – such as a multi-media projector with your laptop (see right: 6.2 Some tips for making a presentation to umpires, Australian Sports Commission, and ICC).
