Concussion Course & Certificate
Annual Concussion Course - Every official who works any NJSIAA contests for any sport is required to take an Annual Concussion Course given in conjunction with NFHS. To access the online course, click the link below;
Uploading your Concussion Certificate - After you have completed the course, you will be able to download a certificate of completion. It is downloaded as a Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file. When you have that file, you can upload it using RefSec by clicking on the following link;
When you click on the upload link you will need to have 2 pieces of information - Either your roster number (which can change annually) and your RefSec PIN (which should be the same year to year), or your email address you used to register via RefSec and your PIN. PS This is the same information that you needed to be able to take your test online this year. If you really can't remember anything, you can use the login in screen to request your PIN be sent to your email address. See the picture on right.
Reporting Technical Fouls
Reporting Technical Fouls - If you issue a technical foul that is unsporting in nature, there are a number of things that you need to keep in mind. All unsporting technical fouls are tracked by the board. If you need to report the foul, you have 2 options; you can report the foul directly using the link to refsec that follows this paragraph, or you can contact your county representative directly.(Current listing of County Representatives can be found on this website Home > EBoard)
Depending on what you have, there may be a number of different reporting requirements. If you have a unsporting technical foul, you must follow the process detailed above. If that unsporting behavior requires the ejection of a player or coach for a flagrant offense, then you may report it via the process, but in addition you will need to reach out to the Board Secretary and report it to him or her. For technical fouls of an administrative nature, no reporting is required.
Remember to check in promptly with the Assignor who assigned you to the game. Most of them would prefer that you reach out to them before they hear about the events from one of the schools involved. As this can be problematic given the nature of communications these days, make the effort to reach out as soon as you can!
