New for 2019, Golf Canada will be adopting the R&A’s Rules Education system. One of the main objectives of the Rules Modernization Initiative was to create consistency around the world in many facets of the Rules of Golf, including educating and training referees. The exams that Golf Canada will use and the designation by marks achieved will be consistent throughout the countries allied to the R&A, such as Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Level 1 provides an interesting and easy way to learn the basics of the Rules of Golf. This level will focus on Etiquette, the principle definitions and commonly encountered situations on the course. As part of the Level 1 program, students will be able to test their knowledge by taking the review questions at the end of each section before attempting the online Level 1 Exam.
Each seminar will be delivered over a period of six (6) weeks and will have a total of one (1) session per week and the exam will be after the six sessions. All the sessions (excluding the examination) will be a maximum of two (2) hours.

Requirements to be Nationally Certified:
Attend and achieve a minimum of 80% on the National level exam, administered by Golf Canada.
