An Endurance Officials course has just been organised by England Athletics in Trowbridge, Wiltshire due to a local request. These courses are put on according to local demand and only a few are held each year.
England Athletics subsidise this course so the cost is only £30 for those attending both modules.

Who should go on this course?
Anyone aged 18 or over who is willing to work under the guidance of a qualified UKA Endurance Official and wants to follow the Pathway to becoming a qualified endurance official. This course is suitable for new officials and current officials wishing to gain the official UKA qualification, insurance & licence card.
How many days will it take?
One day, with no assessment. Officials need to attend both modules on the day to become fully qualified.
What will I learn?

- The requisite skills to be an endurance official
- Relationships with other officials and athletes
- The responsibilities of key officials at an endurance event
- Knowledge and application of the rules of the sport
- Working knowledge of the start, course and finish of an endurance event

What will I be able to do?
After completing the course candidates will need to gain four recognised experiences at endurance events, operating under the supervision of a qualified UKA Endurance Official. Recognised experiences should be documented in the ‘Record of Experiences’ to maintain evidence of undertaking a variety of roles and submitted to England Athletics. A DBS check will also be required, following which a Level 1 Officials Licence will be issued. By undertaking further experiences, completing a log book and studying two compulsory modules and one further optional module, Club Officials can progress to qualify as a Level 2 Endurance Official.
