For anyone wanting to know more about our sport, World Athletics today launches an innovative eLearning platform designed to educate everyone from newcomers to experts.
The creation of this platform is part of World Athletics’ continuing drive to make the sport more accessible to our global community.
The platform, hosted by the World Athletics website, will provide educational courses and webinars for those with a general interest in our sport, such as school teachers and club volunteers, as well as key stakeholder groups, including Member Federations, technical officials, coaches and medical professionals.
The initial courses available include those for budding technical officials, organisers of athletics at club and community level and anyone who wants to know more about the rules of the sport.
Over the next year, modules to be introduced include: sustainability and gender leadership training for Member Federations, health and science courses for medical specialists, and coaching certification.
