Register Past Accreditation

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL) AND RECOGNITION OF CURRENT COMPETENCY (RCC)

If you have completed any level of Refereeing Accreditation before the introduction of The Nest, you are required to register that accreditation through completion of a Recognition of Prior Learning or Recognition of Current Competency (RPL/RCC) survey.

The RPL/RCC surveys are free to complete. You will be asked a series of questions about your accreditation, and on completion of the short survey, you will be asked to either upload a copy of your old certificate or download and complete a TFA Code of Ethics form

  • Please only complete one (the highest) RPL/RCC module per type of accreditation (ie if you are a L3 Referee, complete the Level 3 RPL/RCC only).
  • Answer each question to the best of your ability; don’t stress if you can’t remember all the details regarding your course or previous accreditation.
