Education

Swimming Australia, in conjunction with our State and Territory Swimming Associations, have created a National Technical Official Accreditation Program. This program aims to promote a professional approach to the identification, training and ongoing development of technical officials, for all levels of swimming, conducted by or on behalf of Swimming Australia.

This accreditation and training program is designed to equip participants with the necessary skills, to officiate at all Swimming Australia events and events run under FINA regulations in any of the disciplines leading to the position of Referee. 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.

How to become an accredited Technial Official? 

To become an accredited Technical Official, start off with the General Principles of Officiating online course or get in touch with your local club, region coordinator or State Swimming Association. Once you have completed the General Principles course, choose from a range of accreditations to learn. We have six modules currently online to help you with your learning! You will receive your final accreditation once you have successfully completed both theory and practical components.
