Why are we charging for this course?
- There is a lot of knowledge and effort that went in to creating this
- More importantly, we want to know that you’re serious. Becoming an FGL ref is a commitment that comes with hard work and a lot of rewards – a small monetary charge is one way we ensure that you’re ready to take that commitment. If you work even one match with us you’ll earn back the ref course fee, even as a training ref.
