The FA Referee Course
Final assessment dates
Trainee Referee to Fully Qualified Referee:
After completing the course and passing the practical evaluation, you are now classed as a ‘Trainee Referee’ and have to referee your initial matches (at least five) and attend a Call Back Evening, where you will sit your Laws of the Game Examination.
After successful completing your matches and examination, you will be promoted to a ‘Fully Qualified Referee’. Completing your matches and attending the Call Back Evening post practical course is a mandatory requirement. The aim is to have a Referee Advisor attend one of your initial matches, who is there to support you and aid your development.
Please find below a list of upcoming Call Back Evenings available for you to book onto free of charge.
