World Athletics eLearning Portal

Aimed at anyone interested in learning more about athletics, World Athletics has launched an innovative eLearning platform designed to educate everyone, from newcomers to experts.

 

The Education Hub is hosted on the World Athletics (formerly IAAF) website,  and will provide educational courses and webinars for anyone with a general interest in athletics, e.g. school teachers and club volunteers, along with key stakeholder groups, including Member Federations, technical officials, coaches and medical professionals.

Initially, courses available include videos for novice technical officials, club and community level coaches , and those who want to improve their knowledge of the rules of the sport.

Further modules that will be added over the next year include:

  • Sustainability and gender leadership training for Member Federations
  • Health and science courses for medical specialists
  • Coaching certification
