The FAI General Air Sport Commission (CASI) invites all individuals who are currently officiating or will be officiating in FAI events to register for the 2024 CASI Webinar: Training for FAI Events Officials.

Attendees will take away information that will ensure the smooth-running and efficiency of FAI events. They will be equipped to tackle any challenges that may arise during the event management process. Q&A sessions will provide the opportunity to raise any event specific concerns.

The comprehensive training will delve into essential topics such as the roles and responsibilities of FAI Events Officials and athletes’ rights. It will also include an easily-digestible overview of FAI's main reference documents such as the FAI Sporting Code, the Code of Ethics, and Antidoping rules.

CASI urges all FAI Events Officials to register and actively participate in the upcoming webinar.

The webinar will be hosted by CASI. The Commission’s responsibilities are in the areas of Definitions, Measurements Standards and Methods, FAI preferred terminologies, FAI Sporting Licences, Control of Certified FAI Achievements, World records and Sporting Events.

Spread the word

"We encourage every National Airsport Controls (NAC) and FAI Commissions to spread the word about this webinar and invite interested individuals to register promptly. It is crucial for the success of FAI events that our Officials are completely at ease and thoroughly informed about all aspects of their roles, enabling them to fulfill their responsibilities effectively."
