Referee Courses

IRB Level 1 Officiating


Introducing Officiating is a basic level program.  In most cases, this will be the course that will introduce new recruits to refereeing. Rugby Canada views this program as an “introduction to refereeing” and the minimum level of accreditation, but does not view it as an ideal ongoing level of accreditation appropriate for continuing referees. Referees with ambitions to gain advanced level appointments should eventually progress to higher level accreditation. 

Referees with this level of accreditation are ideally suited to officiate athletes in the learn to train, train to train, and train to compete stages of the LTRD.

The cost for this course is $100.

IRB Level 2 Officiating


Developing Officiating Skills course provides a much more comprehensive program, and should be viewed as the ideal level of accreditation required for match officials with ambitions to advance their refereeing skills and knowledge. Although new recruits will typically enroll in a Level 1 accreditation program, there is no restriction that will prevent them undertaking Level 2 without having previously attained their Level 1.

Referees with this level of accreditation are ideally suited to officiate athletes in train to compete and train to perform stages of the LTRD.

The cost for this course is $150.


IRB Level 3 Officiating:


Analysis & Preparation course provides High Performance Match Officials the tools to plan, prepare, execute, analyze, and improve at the elite level of competition. Athletes at this level are expected to engage in detailed and complete match planning and analysis. This level of accreditation is only offered to High Performance National Panel Match Officials.
