In 2009 the ITU Sport Department launched the ITU Self Funded Officials Programme. This is a programme in which technical officials with appropriate credentials for a particular level may apply to serve as a technical official to further their experience and knowledge, but are required to fund all expenses incurred.
ITU Sport Department is collecting the applications, and following an approval process, we will be communicating lists of self funded technical officials (SFTOs) with the events’ assigned Technical Delegate. At the same time, we will be asking him/her to include the SFTO in the event’s technical officials team. The SFTO’s national federation will be informed for his/her participation in the specific event.
Due to great interest for officiating in the 2010 Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series Grand Final Budapest and to the 2010 Athlone ETU Triathlon European Championships, we are asking from the self-funded program’s candidates to submit their application according to the following timelines:
- ITU Self Funded Officials Program for the Athlone ETU Triathlon European Championships: May 31st, 2010
- ITU Self Funded Officials Program for 2010 Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series Grand Final Budapest: July 1st, 2010
