Become a Referee
It's now even easier to become a Referee in Wales with this new online course.
It's now possible to become a referee via the FAW's online course.
Depending on your ambitions and development there are also opportunities to referee internationally.
There is a proud history of developing referees to the highest level with a selection either being on the FIFA Referees Panel, FIFA Assistant Referees Panel and the JD Welsh Premier League.
Whether it's aspirations to officiate a World Cup Final or help out your local youth or adult leagues, every new referee needs to attend and pass a referees course run by the FAW and the online course is a first step to becoming a FAW Referee.
The Course is an online training module with a practical session to finish.
