Judge 1 Training Deadlines

 Following the reintroduction of a level of competition across the home nations, the British Swimming SOG has taken the following decision with regards to deadlines for candidates to complete Judge 1 training:

  • Anyone who commenced their Judge 1 training under the old face to face/classroom system will have until 31 March 2022 to complete their practical training. 
  • Anyone who completes their Judge 1 online theory training by the 31 August 2021 with have until 31 July 2022 to complete their practical training. 
  • Anyone who completes their Judge 1 online theory training from 1 September 2021 onwards will have 11 months to complete their practical training.

Points to note:

  • The date of completion of the theory training is the date on their certificate and not the date it is uploaded. 
  • It is important that candidates enter the correct date when uploading their certificate, otherwise it defaults to 1 January 2021 which may reduce the time available to complete the practical elements. 
  • Any practical training that has already been completed since the date on their certificate can be used, provided it meets the criteria for mentoring as laid down in the log book.
  • There is no longer a requirement for any Judge 1 candidates to undergo a final assessment, once considered competent on all required elements they may be awarded the qualification.
  • Passes under the “old” system should be processed as such, and NOT via the online upload system. 
  • Requests for extension of any of the published deadlines will be considered on an exceptional, case by case basis. Requests must be submitted by the candidate to swimmingofficials@swimming.org for consideration by the BSSOG

Finally, please do not use any local “fixes” for candidates who have not received their log books. Log books are now being issued on a regular basis so if they are not being received, we need to know so we can establish why. Candidates should email swimmingofficials@swimming.org  with their membership number if they have been waiting more than 2 weeks from uploading their certificate.
