Is that correct?
learn to become a ref online for only 2 hours?
Doesn't seem very practical.

To me it looks like the REGISTRATION has a 2 hour window, NOT the class.

It's an online registration, right? So why have a limit at all? There's absolutely no reason. You should open the registration and keep it open until one of two things happens:
A) The zoom class fills up.
B) 'x' hours before the class starts.

Now, if you look at the actual link, it says you'll have to do an online portion of about 4.5 hours (must be completed a week before the zoom class), and the zoom class is 2 hours. So I bet the date/time in the article is for the class itself, NOT the registration.

When you start your own referee association you can run it the way you want-they have been doing this a while and may actually know what they are doing even with remote challenges.

The bottom line is that referee certification has recently required a certain level of self study BEFORE taking the class. Based on how they are doing it during the Covid19 era this is probably the easiest way to get certified, I would love to know what kind of response they are getting, I’m sure the supply of candidates is low.

People will bitch about everything and anything. Kudos to them for trying to market themselves. Can anyone offer what the breakdown in pay per game, level, league?

I won’t break it down by league but as a CR you can earn a range of $44-90 and as an AR $30-44.

That's the entire problem. There's a ref monopoly and no one else can start a new and better way of getting refs.

Let me educate you-

A monopoly refers to when a company and its product offerings dominate one sector or industry. Monopolies can be considered an extreme result of free-market capitalism and are often used to describe an entity that has total or near-total control of a market.

So how did you come up that a referee association is a monopoly?

Can anyone become a referee without going through ENYSRA? What happens to a league or club if they don't use ENYSRA for their referees?

The referee certification/recertification is approved by the USSF. This year it is an online class.

Why would you care who conducts it? If you want to become a referee that should motivate you enough to just do what you have to do to get certified or recertified.

Somebody has to do it to a certain standard and be approved. It is what it is. Want to become a referee? Take the online class.

This is a description of a monopoly. None of those are requirements to be a skilled referee. They are protective measures for the monopoly. If the adult leagues that don't force this paid certification get better referees and don't have problems with numbers, it's something the leagues and clubs should be looking at.

What adult leagues could you be possibly referring to? Professional leagues use certified referees. The USSF certification is the standard. You don’t have to be certified by any specific organization, you can go anywhere in the country and become certified.
The referee certification is pretty straight forward and is the least political part of the soccer in this country. Can you please illuminate us on what your problem or agenda is?
