More Info on becoming a Triathlon Australia Technical Official
To become a Triathlon Australia technical official, you must participate in one of the many officials’ accreditation courses conducted around the Country each year. Each State/Territory Triathlon Association (STTA) conducts these courses for participants, who must become members of their respective STTA. All STTA’s recognise non -competing technical officials, with reduced membership fees.
Accreditation courses are conducted (periodically) leading up to or on the weekends of sanctioned events. Participation involves attending a working seminar that runs for approximately four hours, completing an exam covering the race competition rules and completing one practical session, officiating at a sanctioned event.
When officiating at an event sanctioned by the STTA, the participant will meet with the technical team for a pre -event briefing to discuss the technical plan and positions allocated on the field of play. The Technical Delegate (TD) will provide all information to the team before handing over authority to the Race Referee (RR). A technical uniform will be presented either prior to or on race day, to be worn only at times when on official duty.
Upon completion of this course, the graduating participant is classified as a local Technical Official and added to the National Technical Register operated by the Triathlon Australia. A Local Technical Official will be required to officiate at a minimum of three sanctioned event over the course of the next twelve months or so to maintain their accreditation.
