Promoting BRIDGE within Victoria
interest in the game

  • Accredited Bridge Teachers in Victoria

    Since 2011 a national scheme of accreditation of bridge teachers in Australia has been conducted by the ABF, and many dozens of teachers around the country have been accredited. This process endeavours to ensure that bridge students are taught by properly-trained individuals using state-of-the-art methods.

    In Victoria, there are presently seven accredited teachers and three Honorary Teaching Fellows. The latter are eminent teachers who automatically qualified for accreditation based on their reputation and vast experience.

    The profiles of the Victorian and other teachers may be found here:
