The MWFRA conducts entry level courses prior to the beginning of each local football season in February and March.

These courses are officially sanctioned by Football Federation Australia and participants will obtain the FFA Level 4 Referee Accreditation on successful completion of the course.

This level of accreditation enables holders to be appointed by the MWFRA to any officially sanctioned match, though appointment to matches at higher levels will depend on technical competence.

These courses are open to both adults and children.
