Referee Registration  

Referee registration can be completed via the registration portal here.

If you are unsure of your password, there is an option to reset your password at the sign in stage.

For referees that are aged 14 or 15, please see the step by step guide here. The assigned parent/guardian will need to provide consent for the referee registration. 


Safeguarding, DBS & Qualifications 

If you are unable to re-register this may be due to your qualifications being out of date. To complete the safeguarding re-certification, click here. If you have previously completed this course, you will not need to pay to complete the re-certification. If you have not previously completed the safeguarding for all workshop, you will need to complete the course which is a £30 one time fee. 

If your DBS has expired, please email Referees@NottinghamshireFA.com for the DBS guidance document. 

If you are unable to complete the registration to start your DBS application due to an error message that appears referencing Whole Game System then the following advice is recommended. Firstly, you will need to clear your internet cache/cookies and re-try. If the problem persists, then you will need to contact First Advantage directly via phone: 0115 969 4600 or email: support@onlinedisclosures.co.uk
