Referees courses are held in all areas of Wales under the jurisdiction of the local Associations. Once the course is satisfactorily completed individuals concerned will be able to progress through the system, and even progress to the FIFA International list of Referees and Assistant Referees, which gives them the opportunity to Officiate in all parts of Europe and on occasion in other parts of the world.
UEFA Referee Convention
The Football Association of Wales joined the UEFA Referee's Convention on March 31st 2010. In doing so, the FAW became one of thirty UEFA national associations who are part of the UEFA Convention on Referee Education and Organisation, which aims to raise refereeing standards across the European game.
The UEFA Convention on Referee Education and Organisation has a variety of objectives. These include enhancing referee education, promoting the role of the referee, and improving refereeing structures and development within the European associations.
When they sign the convention, associations agree to a development plan for refereeing and become entitled to receive a financial contribution for their work, and further annual payments as long as the required standards are maintained
