Become an Technical Official
Technical Officials are important to our organisation and any professional swimming body.
The National Technical Official Accreditation Program, conducted by Swimming Australia in conjunction with Swimming Queensland, introduces an individual to the basic competencies required to officiate at Swimming Australia, Swimming Queensland and Darling Downs Swimming sanctioned meets. 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.
Swimming Australia has six officiating modules online to become accredited in any of the positions below:
General Principles of Officiating
Clerk of Course
Judge of Strokes
Inspector of Turns
Once successfully completed, the member will be awarded theory pass documentation.
