TO Education Programme (ATOEP)

Updated: 28 Oct, 2020 12:20 pm

World Triathlon Accredited Technical Officials Education ProgrammeThe World Triathlon Accredited Technical Officials’ Education Programme (ATOEP), targets developed National Federations with an existing Technical Officials’ Education Programme and provides the opportunity for these NFs to have their existing programmes accredited.

More information on this programme can be downloaded here.

The accreditation will be based on four principles:

  1. The NFs’ Technical Official’s levels have to match at one point with the World Triathlon Level 1 (NTO).
  2. The NFs’ Technical Official education programme has to include a three (3) level education pathway of their National Technical Officials (NTOs).
  3. The Competition Rules of the NF must match with the World Triathlon Competition Rules.
  4. The NF structure has to comply with World Triathlon Constitution.

The accreditation process will be articulated in several phases.

  • Request and programme submission
  • Programme evaluation
  • Accreditation
  • Control by ITU
  • Revision

The Accredited NFs will inform World Triathlon about the NTO courses they are holding, with the place, date, programme and facilitator(s)’ names. At the end of each calendar year, these NFs can submit to World Triathlon a list with their new NTOs, who have to comply with all the requirements, including officiating in a World Triathlon event.

The World Triathlon Sport Department will include these technical officials in the World Triathlon Technical Officials’ database after it is approved by the World Triathlon Technical Committee.
