Event Fact Sheets

Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme (AAOES)
Level 1 of the AAOES addresses the needs of club level officiating and includes short, easy to complete on-line courses covering each of the Event areas in Little Athletics. Each course (eg. “Discus”) requires about 45 – 90 minutes of your time, and you will receive a Level 1 Certificate for each course you complete. The scheme also provides pathways to Level 2 and Level 3 programs which provide the higher levels of expertise required to officiate at State & National level championships.
