2014 On-line Recertification
The on-line version of the 2014 Recertification Module and Exam is now available.
If you are unable to register for 2014 because you have not satisfied US Soccer's 5 hour minimum annual continuing education requirement and if you cannot attend an Instructor-led Recertification Clinic between now and the end of the year, then you can click on the link below to launch an on-line version of the Recertification materials.
The Recertification Materials reside in Brainshark and contain the following topics:
- Memorandum of Law Changes for 2013-2014,
- Advice to New Referees,
- Referee & Assistant Referee Signals,
- The Pre-Game Conference,
- Fouls vs. Misconduct,
- Referee Abuse, and
- Concussion Awareness.
After you have finished the presentation portion, you will transition to the 50 question Recertification Exam.
Upon completion of the on-line module and test, your recertification hours and test score will be entered into the Iowa Referee Committee (IRC) database so that you can register for 2014.
If you have any questions re: the on-line materials or exam, please contact me at email@example.com.
