Introduction to Match Officiating (Pre-L1)

This module aims to provide learners who have an interest in becoming a match official with a basic level of understanding of how to referee. Upon completion of this module you should be ready to undertake the face-to-face Introduction to Match Officiating (Pre-L1) course delivered by licenced World Rugby Educators.

Upon successful completion of both the online module and face-to-face course participants should be able to demonstrate basic officiating skills and to officiate aspects of the game in a modified context.

When you've finished reading all of the sections, there is a test to complete. Upon successful completion of the multiple-choice test, you will be able to download an awareness certificate. It is necessary to complete this test prior to attending the face-to-face course.
