The Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme (AAOES) is a joint initiative of Athletics Australia and Coles Little Athletics Australia, providing a seamless and transparent education pathway for Australian Athletics Officials.
The scheme is endorsed by the Australian Sports Commission and follows best industry practice, with online learning coupled with face-to-face delivery. The aim of the Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme is to ensure an effective and efficient education framework is provided to guarantee Australian Athletics Officials remain world leaders in event delivery at all levels of athletic competition.
The Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme emphasises the power of knowledge and competency. Our aim is for it to be widely accessible and it will encourage a greater number of people to be provided with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge to officiate athletics competitions.
The athletics specific levels of this scheme delivered within Australia are:
- Club/Centre/School Official AAOES Level 1
- State Level Official AAOES Level 2
- National Level Official AAOES Level 3
