Technical Officials

Technical Officials are the referees of the sport, providing valuable support at triathlon events. There are three Technical Official courses in the UK, two of which are delivered by Triathlon Scotland – Local and Regional Technical Official- and one which is delivered by British Triathlon – National Technical Official. We also provide a pathway for developing Motorcycle Technical Officials. You can read all about Motorcycle Officials here.

If you are new to officiating and are interested in finding out how to get started on the development pathway, check out our handy guide in the useful links below as well as information on expenses for your services.  You can also sign up to our annual training course.  To see what Technical Officials typically get up to at an event, you can watch our short video below.
