Training Courses

Education and training in sport is important to ensure that clubs, committee members, officials, volunteers and other people who work and participate have the necessary knowledge and understanding of the topics relevant to their roles and type of involvement. By working closely with Sport Integrity Australia (SIA), NSW Office of the Children's Guardian (NSW OCG), NSW Office of Sport (NSW OoS) and Football Australia (FA) in providing quality education and training for its membership, Football NSW is able to ensure the provision of quality and up-to-date education and training across the many levels of football within Football NSW.

For those familiar with Play By The Rules (PBTR), we advise that PBTR is now part of Sport Integrity Australia and all PBTR training courses are accessed via the SIA ELearning platform.  Users can access the ELearning using their PBTR Username and Password.  Note that if you create a new Username and Password any prior PBTR or SIA course certificates and training history will be lost.
