The Level 1 Referee Course is the basic course. It covers the referee’s priorities, provides an introduction to the Laws, and examines scrums, ruck/mauls, tackles, lineouts, offside, and advantage with focus on the critical parts and how to referee them. When a student has completed this course, and the accompanying test, they are ready to begin refereeing safely. This is just the first step in a referee’s education, but it is the necessary beginning.
