    Contents The course is made up of three parts: Part A - This section of the course allows you to explore Laws 1-4, Laws 7-10 and Laws 13 -17 in your own time. On registration you will receive a link to the content for each Law, navigate through the material and complete the assessment questions that follow before moving onto the next Law. The pass mark for each assessment is 50% and you will be required to attempt the questions again if you do not meet that requirement. Part B - Will consist of 6 hours of practical workshops by Zoom. These meetings will focus on the Laws 5, 6, 11 & 12, which are the more complex Laws. The workshops will also be used to explore the practical aspects of refereeing. Please note that you cannot attend the practical without having completed all the assessments from Part A of the course. Part C - After the workshops you will receive a link to complete the final course assessment. This is an open book exam, and you will have 48 hours to submit your answers.
