Step 3 - Practical Experience

After completing the Accreditation Modules, Trainee Technical Officials are invited to attend SWA Meets to gain practical experience in the relevant positions from the Module they undertook.

All Trainee Officials are required to wear plain White Polo Shirts to SWA Meets.

Step 4 - Assessment
