New British Swimming Judge Level 1 Training

Monday 27th January 2020 saw the launch of the new online theory modules for the training of the pool Judge 1 technical officials. This brings to a close a considerable amount of work in partnership with Swim England and the Institute of Swimming to ensure we are delivering a quality product to our volunteers.

Whilst the content of the training remains largely unchanged, the move to an online format will allow volunteers to start the training at their own pace and to fit with all the other lifestyle commitments which we know our volunteers have.

Following a period of development and testing the course will form part of the British Swimming portfolio of officials’ training and will be delivered in the same format by all of the Home Countries, ensuring consistency of experience for all candidates.

Face to face delivery of the theory training will be replaced by access to local support on request, with a dedicated new email address being set up to provide ongoing additional support as we seek to grow our number of qualified officials.

Once their theory training is complete and registered, candidates will be provided with local Tutor/Mentor to guide them through their practical assessments.

Training resources have been updated and clear guidance is now included on suggested timescales for undertaking each competence, with a time limit for completion of Theory & Practical of 11 months has been introduced.

Upon completion of all Judge 1 training individuals will automatically be issued with their first licence, which will be valid for 4 years, which then enable them to apply to volunteer at all events up to and including National level.
