Seeking Volunteers to Pilot Levels 1 and 2 Modules
Officials Certification - Online Development Program Pilot Information Package
The on-line training and development program for New Officials is now here. We are looking for volunteers to help with 3 pilots to provide feedback respecting the on-line modules before wider release:
- Pilot 1— 4 to 6 volunteers with no track and field experience. You will participate in the pilot of the Level 1 module covering the basic operations of track and field events;
- Pilot 2— 3 to 5 volunteers who have some track and field experience as an athlete, coach, etc. but not a current official. You will participate in the pilot of the Level 2 module. This module covers what officials do in officiating a track and field competition; and
- Pilot 3—3 to 5 volunteers who are currently a Level 1 official and looking to upgrade to Level 2. You will participate in testing the same Level 2 module as those under Pilot 2.
All three pilots will be conducted the week of July 20 and will involve reviewing the corresponding online module and completing an evaluation on your understanding of the material presented. You can complete the pilot on your own time—all at once or split across several sessions. As the modules are on-line, you can view the modules wherever you have internet access.
It is estimated to take 1 hour to complete the pilot of the Level 1 module and 2 hours for the Level 2 module.
TO REGISTER To Take the Online Pilot Course: Please reply to Marilyn Benz - firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number and email on or before Monday, July 13. Volunteers will be selected and contacted by July 17.
This is a very exciting opportunity to help roll out our on-line training and development program for New Officials. Information on the results of the pilot and next steps in rolling out the training and development program for New Officials will be provided in this newsletter and on the BC Athletics website.
Thank you for your interest and consideration of this opportunity.
