Getting Started as an Official
For officials, three levels of accreditation exist:
- Level I
- Level II
Race Organisation and Technical Panel (ROTP) are responsible for accreditation and appointment of Race Officials for Level I and Level II.
Seeding and Technical Panel (STP) are responsible for the accreditation and appointment of Technical Delegates.
To be accredited, officials need to undertake a suitable training course, carry out a range of duties at races, and be observed and assessed by a member of ROTP, or a Technical Delegate.
Each registered race official should record their achievement on a proforma in the log book. This can be completed at each step, and when all the criteria are fulfilled, it can be submitted as part of the accreditation.
