Upon completion of the Online and Face-to-face component of the course, the candidate will qualify as a ‘Referee in Training’ which enables them to referee the relevant age groups for a period of 18 months. During this time the candidate is required to undergo a practical assessment. If the candidate is deemed competent they will be officially accredited as a Level 1 Referee.
