LEVEL 1 REFEREE COURSE

Level One Course (Online): This new course has been developed so that you can do most of the course at home, in your own time. The date set for the course is the only session you physically attend a session with an instructor. This session will be about 4 hours in duration and includes the last couple of modules/ units, discussion on other parts of the course and refereeing in general and a test on the Laws of the Game. Ideally you should have completed the online part of the course before the date of the offline part for which you registered.
