FA Basic Referee Training Course
The FA Basic Referee Training Course provides participants with an insight to the laws of the game and their practical application on the field of play. It also looks at the skills required to be a referee.
The minimum age to book onto and attend a referee course is 14. There is no maximum age.
Potential candidates should book directly onto a referee course via our website, with links available in each course's respective page.
The course fee is £110.00 per candidate
All bookings are made through a secure online portal and confirmations of bookings are generated back to you after payment has been made.
You will be required to enter your FA Number (FAN) and password to book onto a course or create a FAN and password to book onto one if you don’t have one already
Create a FAN by clicking here.
Note: You will need to create a new FAN for your son/daughter if you already have a FAN yourself, because the FAN used will be accepted as the person booked onto the course.
