Training & Tests

 

US Soccer's Grade 9, 8, 7 and 6 Courses each have an online training component in Brainshark. The individual modules are a good source of review for the LOTGs and the points-of-emphasis for each Grade. Spanish language versions of the online courses can be found at the US Soccer Resource Center. Recertification Modules and Just-in-Time (JIT) Training materials for Iowa referees are provided separately. You will be prompted to enter your name, e-Mail address, and State Association – the fields identified with a red asterisk *.

US Soccer's Grade-specific Tests are available online in EasyTestMaker. If you need to take one of these tests and require an Access Code, send the State Director of Instruction (SDI) an e-Mail at RCWalaskaSDI@gmail.com. However, don't request the Access Code until you are ready to take the test – the codes expire. Each test has 50+ questions. You have 2 hours to complete the test. A passing score is 80%. If you would like to test your knowledge of the FIFA LOTG ahead of time, go to AReferee.com for a variety of practice tests and short quizzes.
