Commissaire Courses

Education and practical experience are vital to support the Commissaire pathway and ensure that there are sufficiently knowledgeable and skilled officials.

The goal of AusCycling’s Commissaire education program is to ensure competencies for each level are progressed in an appropriate and robust format.

The AusCycling courses provide an opportunity to develop competencies through a mixture of practical and theory-based learning. 

The Commissaire and Officials courses outlined require participants to demonstrate required competencies for each level from gained theoretical knowledge and practical delivery.
