The National Technical Official Accreditation Program, conducted by Swimming Australia, introduces an individual to the basic competencies required to officiate at Swimming Australia/SwimmingSA sanctioned events. This accreditation program also provides a clear and defined pathway for Technical Officials to move from officiating at their local club meets to officiating at the Olympics.
The target market for this course includes currently accredited and operating officials looking to update / refresh their skills and individuals who are interested in becoming trained to officiate at ratified meets.
The nationally accredited training programs will be delivered by the State and Territory Swimming Associations. For further information on undertaking Technical Official education, please contact SwimmingSA at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 08 7123 0848.
Furher details are also available on the National Technical Official Accreditation Program Brochure.
