Become a Referee

 


To become a referee, you must be 13 years of age or over and you will need to complete the FFA Online Laws of the Game Course and complete the Level 4 Referee Course.

The FFA Online Laws of the Game Course provides a basic introduction to the Laws of the Game and their interpretation. To successfully complete the course, a participant needs to pass the online examination and print their Statement of Completion Certificate.

The Level 4 Referee Course provides participants with education and training to become a referee. It can be undertaken in a classroom environment as a one day course consisting of theory modules and practical sessions on a pitch to enable referees to begin officiating.

The Level 4 Referee Course can also now be undertaken online. Participants complete the theory modules, and upon meeting the course requirements, attend a practical session on a pitch to enable them to begin officiating.
