2) Enrol onto a Referee Course
Book online
by clicking here
**You must not book onto a Referee Course before you have attended an Introduction Evening**

3) Referee five 9v9 or 11v11 matches
These will be organised for you as part of the course

4) Exam and Certificates
Complete and pass a Laws of The Game exam, DBS check and Safeguarding Children qualification (information will be provided during the course)

NOTE: If you are only looking to complete a referee course for school studies, voluntary awards such as Duke of Edinburgh or to gain an extra qualification this is not the course for you. You will be expected to actively referee regularly upon completion of the course.

Please read the Frequently Asked Questions & Essential Information document below as this will answer most queries relating to the Referee Course.

Anyone booking onto a Referee Course before attending an Introduction Evening will be removed from the course without warning.
