VOLUNTEERS & OFFICIALS

ProMX CHAMPIONSHIP

One of the most recognised keys to the future of motorcycle sport is the development and training of Officials.

Becoming a ProMX volunteer or official can be a rewarding and at times, a challenging role, and the duties of Officials include Steward, Clerk of Course, Race Secretary, Flag or Track Marshal, Timekeeper, Referee, Starter, Judge, Scrutineer or Measurer.

Officials have the responsibility to ensure that race meetings are conducted in the safest environment possible for competitors and spectators.

Motorcycling Australia’s National Officials’ Accreditation Scheme (NOAS) was launched in 1994, and with a greater emphasis now being placed on safety, there comes a greater need for accredited Motorcycle Sport Officials.

Don’t have any experience or accreditation? No worries! Contact us at info@auspromx.com.au and we can help you on your journey.

If you attend an event and want to help out by volunteering your time, find the Race Secretary of the meeting who will get you started on your Officiating journey! If you can be placed in a position, you will act as an assistant whilst in training or assisting at the event. Moving forward, you will need to complete your Level 1 Officials Course.

Level 1 Officials Course for new officials can be found HERE > Members > New Member > Become an Official. Please only take this course if you do not currently hold an MA Officials licence at any level. If you currently hold an Officials licence and need to upgrade, renew or replace your licence, please contact your State Controlling Body.

For more information about attaining International (FIM) Accreditation, please contact MA either via email (development@ma.org.au) or by telephone (03) 9684 0500.

There are currently four levels of Officials accreditation:

Level 1 – Club Level

Level 2 – Inter Club Level

Level 3 – Open Event/State Title Level

Level 4 – National Championship Level

LEVEL 1 – CLUB LEVEL

In order to act as an official at club level, prospective officials may attend a seminar or complete relevant online or correspondence training and must successfully achieve the assessment requirements.

The completed assessment and licence application are to be returned to the relevant State Controlling Body for processing.

Applicants may complete this assessment in their own time and may refer to the GCR’s. The questionnaire may be comprised of multiple choice questions. The assessment needs to be successfully completed by persons wishing to become an accredited official.

Generally, all current officials are automatically graded at Level 1 unless application is made for higher accreditation
