The Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme (AAOES) provides a seamless and transparent education pathway for Australian Athletics Officials.

The scheme is endorsed by the Australian Sports Commission and follows best industry practice, with online learning coupled with face-to-face delivery. The aim of the Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme is to ensure an effective and efficient education framework is provided to guarantee Australian Athletics Officials remain world leaders in event delivery at all levels of athletic competition.


Once you have completed Level 1, contact Mary at our local member association, ANSW. They can assist in providing opportunities for you to utilise the knowledge you have learned through the online courses.

​The specific levels of this scheme delivered within Australia are:

  • Club/Centre/School Official AAOES Level 1
  • State Level Official AAOES Level 2
  • National Level Official AAOES Level 3

The Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme is complemented by two additional invitation-only courses, which are delivered at Oceania Athletics Association or International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) level. These courses are designed to allow Australian Athletics Officials the opportunity to advance their education past that of existing national officiating levels.

Come help us with officiating at our NSWMA events:

We are always looking for officials to help us run our NSWMA events, especially those with accreditation, as many of our members want to claim masters records, and include their results in world rankings list.

We have our own championships (Indoors and Outdoors) and regular lead up meets for throws, and plan to expand our offerings to track and out of stadia events this year.

If you are interested, please click on the link below to register your name and details, and we will contact you when events are coming up.

We promise to look after you very well, with a great lunch, snacks and drinks, and will also provide you with a Masters Athletics Officials shirt.
