OFFICIATING COURSES - GROUP SIGN UP

If you are looking to book a course for six or more candidates, the information you require is below.

On this page, you will find all you need to know about signing up to our online courses. Our Level 1 Referee, Level 1 Table Official and Introduction to Statistics courses are available to be utilised by clubs, leagues, associations, schools, colleges and universities to name but a few. We are offering a huge 50% discount where 6 or more candidates attend the course.

Our online courses utilise the Hive Learning platform, which can be operated on a laptop, computer or smart device (phone or tablet).

The theoretical learning for all three awards can be synchronous or asynchronous depending on your preference. Each candidate will need to complete the Hive Learning modules but you may wish to have this delivered face-to-face to aid learning. You can source a tutor if this is your preferred method.

There is a requirement for a 2-hour practical session for the Level 1 Referee Award. A syllabus will be made available for this. A full basketball court will be required. As the organiser you will be required to source an eligible tutor for this session.

Only approved tutors can be used.

Covid-19 Restrictions

Currently face-to-face delivery is not allowed. Candidates can still complete the Level 1 Table Official and Introduction to Statistics qualifications without a tutor, or with a tutor supporting online via a virtual platform.

The Level 1 Referee qualification is split into theory and practical elements; the theory elements can be completed as above. The practical elements currently cannot be delivered.
