International Technical Officials

Recognising that the resources and effort involved in developing a technical officials educational programme may be beyond capabilities on a national level, World Athletics established a Technical Officials Education and Certification System (TOECS) which is available as a service to Member Federations that would like to make use of it.

The goal of the TOECS is to improve the level of athletics officiating all over the world, which means creating a basic level of officiating skills where nothing or only a grass roots situation exists and improving the level of officiating skills where a system is already in place.

The operation of the TOECS is co-ordinated by the World Athletics Development Department and the Area Associations. The TOECS features standard learning materials and specifically trained lecturers for the following three levels of courses:

Level I
The objective of the Level I course is to provide participants with the theoretical and practical training required to make them capable of officiating at national level competitions and at international competitions held within the country. The Level I course also identifies candidates for the position of NTO. Level I courses are organised by the Member Federation, however, for approved courses the IAAF will supply the necessary materials. Participants who successfully complete the course receive an IAAF Level I Officiating Certificate. Those participants whose examination marks meet the required standards are eligible to attend a Level II course.

Level II
The objective of the Level II course is to provide participants with the theoretical and practical training required to make them capable of officiating at international competitions up to the Area level. The Level II course also identifies candidates for the position of ATO. Participants who successfully complete the course receive an IAAF Level II Officiating Certificate. Those participants whose examination marks meet the required standards are eligible to attend a Level III course.

Level III
The objective of the Level III course is to provide participants with the theoretical and practical training required to make them capable of officiating at international competitions up to the highest level. Participants who successfully complete the course receive the IAAF Officiating Diploma and are placed on the IAAF ITO Panel making them eligible for appointment to ITO positions.
