Officiating Courses

The 2018-19 athletics season has started and promises to be another busy and exciting season, with plenty of opportunities for Officials to be engaged at all levels of competition or at the level you choose to be involved in.

On-line Learning

In preparation for the season, it is always a good idea to refresh your knowledge of the rules of competitions. The Australian Athletics officials education on-line program is a great place to go, irrespective if you have previously completed any of the modules or what your level of accreditation is. You will always learn something new and/or have a better understanding of the rules. If you have not completed any of the on-line program, now is a great time to start.
