PRE-REQUISITES FOR REGISTRATION
THE FA’S ONLINE GUIDE TO THE LAWS OF THE GAME
The FA’s guide to the Laws of the Game will help improve your understanding of the Laws of the Game (and the variations for youth football) and is available FREE OF CHARGE.
There are five sections (modules) to work through and it will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. Videos are used throughout to demonstrate how the Law should be applied and there are activities to reinforce all the key points. There are some questions at the end of each module, all of which must be answered correctly to successfully complete the learning.
ACCESS THE ONLINE LAWS OF THE GAME
If the candidate is Under 18 ensure that a parent or guardian has created a FA Number (FAN) and you have been linked together using https://myaccount.thefa.com. If you need help creating a FAN click HERE to view the guide.
When completing the online Laws of the Game training, please make sure you're logged in as the referee, not the parent.
ALL Referees MUST Have In-Date Safeguarding Education Prior To Registering for the course.
Potential Referees who are 14/15 years old must complete the FREE 1 hour Safeguarding For All course (valid for two years)
Potential Referees aged 16+ must complete the new Online Safeguarding Children Course (£30) which is valid for two years (with continual free re-certification) NB this is NOT part of the Referee Course fee and must be paid directly to The FA upon sign up/registration.
When completing the Safeguarding Education training, please make sure you're logged in as the referee, not the parent.
FA DBS CHECK
All potential Referees Aged 16+ must have an in-date FA DBS Check to officiate Under 18 Games in Youth Football – ideally this will have been started prior to the course so that verification of the relevant chosen ID can be arranged during the course. Contact RDO Scott Taylor to get the process started.
