Sport could not operate without the skills, training and dedication of Officials. Triathlon is no different and given the combination of disciplines involved, it certainly requires its Technical Program and the individuals known as "Technical Officials" (TO’s) playing a significant role.
Level 1 - Introductory level controlled by the STTA designed to educate the participant on the Race Competition Rules. TACT runs a Level 1 course prior to the commencement of each summer season.
Level 2 - Next step to becoming a State/Territory based Race Referee or Technical Delegate. Demonstrated ability in building a professional relationship with State/Territory Race Directors, trust with the STTA as the person ideally 'sanctioning events' and suitable to the senior ranks as a leader. TACT conducts Level 2 courses on demand.
Level 3 - Successful State/Territory Technical Official ready to step into the National arena, working outside their State/Territory at high profile events. Identified as a future senior member of the Technical Program;
National Technical Official - Highest national level of achievement. Ability to lead a Technical Team at major National events, liaise with all stakeholders and influence decisions appropriately.
International Technical Official - The next step from National Technical Official(NTO) as an Australian TO to the international stage, is known as becoming an ITO.
Type of course: Level 1
Venue: St James' Uniting Church, Curtin
