Recertification Modules

 

These are previous online Recertification Training Modules required by Iowa for referees who did not earn enough continuing education hours during the year to be able to re-register with US Soccer.

Review questions and/or the Recertification Exam for that registration year* are embedded in each Brainshark module. The 2019-2020 Referee Recertification Modules can be found in the US Soccer Learning Center.
