The new on-line Rules seminar and exam for everyday golfers is available from the following webpage - http://rulesacademy.randa.org/

The Australian National Rules Accreditation & Education Programs Framework will now consist of five tiers following the recent inclusion of The R&A Rules Academy.

The R&A Rules Academy is based on the Rules of Golf and provides a great introduction to the Rules for players starting out in the game. The course features video, images and diagrams of Rules situations and includes revision questions after each section. 

The R&A Rules Academy covers the essentials that all golfers should know such as sportsmanship, integrity and respect. It adopts a tee to green approach and tells you what you need to know at each point; from where to tee your ball, to taking relief from various conditions, to holing out and returning the score card.

At the end of the course, people can take a Rules Exam and receive a certificate. Exams consist of 50 questions broken. Participants must attain a mark of at least 60% to pass.

For those wishing to continue to develop their Rules knowledge, there are the Club Level and State Level Rules Accreditation Courses that are conducted by the Australian State Associations. And at the elite levels there is the Advanced State Level Rules & Competitions Course, or perhaps the opportunity to be a National Referee at the Emirates Australian Open or the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open.

The Framework’s six tiers are as follows:
1. Rules & Handicapping General Education Programs
2. R&A Rules Academy (1st Proof of Competency Level)
3. Club Level (2nd Proof of Competency Level)
4. Advanced State Level Rules & Competitions Course (3rd Proof of Competency Level)
5. National Level
