INTERESTED IN BECOMING AN OFFICIAL?
The Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme (AAOES) is a joint initiative of Athletics Australia and Coles Little Athletics Australia, providing 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 Education Scheme is to ensure that an effective and efficient education framework is provided, to guarantee that Australian Athletics Officials remain world leaders in event delivery, at all levels of athletic competition, to be widely accessible, and to encourage a greater number of people so as to be provided with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge to officiate athletics competitions.
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.
Getting started is easy: Firstly, complete the Level 0 - Introduction to Officiating module, then move on to the Athletics Specific Level 1 - Club/Centre/School Official. Once you have completed Level 1, we encourage you to make contact with your local member association. They can assist in providing opportunities for you to utilise the knowledge you have learned through the online courses.
