Biathlon Officials Training Opportunities

Biathlon Canada and Biathlon BC will be offering the courses below.

You must reply by June 29, 2012 to make this happen.

The locations will be chosen depending on the location of the applicants.

Financial assistance will be provided by Biathlon Canada for the course conductor attendance, and depending on the response, some assistance from Biathlon BC may be forthcoming for candidates.


These courses are rarely run, and will cover all Western Canada.


Leader’s Course is designed for those interested and involved in race organization. This course provides all the information required to stage a successful event. The Leader Level qualification is a 22-hour in-class course where participants must be at least 18 years of age and have a minimum of 2 years as an Advanced Level official with at least 8 competitions completed (with at least one of those in the position of Supervisor). Biathlon Canada selects candidates for this course based on applications and the qualification and experience of the candidate.


The Advanced level covers the rules in greater detail and prepares officials for chief roles in major competitions. The Advanced Level qualification is a 14-hour in-class course where participants must be at least 16 years of age and have completed one year as an Entry Level official with 8 competencies completed. The qualified Advanced level official will work under supervision, but may perform minor supervision in any of the officials positions at either the shooting range, course, timing, stadium or competition office functions.
