Officials – Essex and London training
Most of you will have been advised by your club secretary’s that the officials training for J1 will be changing to an online version in 2020. This will mean that all assessments for current J1 trainees will need to be completed by July 2020 or the candidates will need to start again using the online version.
Kay & I have discussed this and we will run one more J1 course under the tutor lead regime, so we encourage you all to get as many of your candidates on this course as possible. We hope to have completed all 3 theory sessions by October 2019, which then gives your candidates 7 months to get all of their competencies signed off, attend a mix of meets, do their contemporary issues online course and be assessed by July 2020.
The first session of the new J1 course will be held at LAC on Thursday 18/4/19, 5.30 -7.30pm. The venues for the other theory sessions will either be at Fullwell Cross, East Ham or LAC, depending on where I can get a room on the agreed date and will probably revert to a Sunday due to my work commitments. The date for the second session will be agreed by majority at the first session.
If you have any candidates, can you please ask them to complete the attached and return to me, cc yourselves? You will need to keep a copy for yourselves to enable your membership secretary to register them with Swim England so they are insured to be on poolside.
It will be first come first served, but I will need a minimum of 8 to actually go ahead with running the course.
I am also planning to run a J2 course on Friday 26th April at East Ham leisure centre, 7pm – 8.30pm. If you have any qualified J1’s who wish to progress to J2, can you please ask them to complete the attached form and return to me. I will need a minimum of 4 candidates to go ahead with this course.
