To enrol, you must enter your own FAN number, or create one if you do not have one. If you are booking on behalf of somebody else, please ensure you enter the details of the Candidate who wishes to enrol onto the course, and not your own!
Each workshop will begin at 18:45, with each space costing £12.50; payment being made through the online booking link only. All workshops subject to run, providing a minimum number of Candidates enrol. Referee Course dates WILL NOT appear on our website, but dates and venues will be provided only to those who attend. Only those who have attended a workshop will be permitted to enrol onto a Referee Course.
Please do help us to share this information with anyone else who may wish to become a Kent FA Referee. Whilst we do encourage players to ‘take up the whistle’, we expect all trainee referees to sign up to a League to gain independent appointments and not to officiate solely for one Club; if an individual is still playing, they may need to make a decision as to whether they continue to focus on this route in football, or indeed sacrifice this to focus on being a referee…it is difficult to balance both commitments.
If you have any further questions, then please do not hesitate to contact me!
