Learning Center


The US Soccer Learning Center is a learning management system and registration database designed to house all US Soccer educational programs for referees. Sign up for a free account, create a Profile, and then take part in online courses, browse for in-person courses in your area, and track your US Soccer licenses and other certifications.

All your important information will be in your Profile, i.e., 16-digit USSF ID number, e-Mail address, phone number, personal photo, receipts for payments made, licenses held with expiration dates, and registration history.

Referees, Assessors, Assignors, and Instructors use the Learning Center for annual Recertification & Registration.
