Learning for Accreditation

UKA Officials courses are typically conducted at the beginning of the season. To achieve Level 1 accreditation, you must attend a face-to-face (F2F) or virtual officials learning course, along with the Health & Safety course. However, you can start officiating before completing these courses.
