Steps to becoming a qualified referee

Click on the ‘Purchase Course’ tab at the top of the page, scroll down to the Advanced Referee Course and click on ‘Take this course’. There is only one course regardless of your geographical location.

During the first module you’ll be asked to add a range of important information. Here you’ll add your preferred end of course face to face session location and date and your kit size.

If you’ve purchased a course that comes with kit you can order it by following the instructions on the ‘Before you Begin’ lesson.

Work your way through the 5 sections and then pass the exam.

When you pass the course you’ll be able to download your official referee certificate. Keep it somewhere safe.

Go along to the final face to face session you previously chose. Here you’ll go through the last few steps to becoming a fully qualified referee. You’ll also get a chance to chat to your local area referee representative about officiating upcoming games.

Once all the above are completed you can officiate your first game!
