Important notice from Swimming SOG regarding Judge 1 training
Following the reintroduction of a level of competition across the home nations, the British Swimming SOG has taken the following decision with regards to deadlines for candidates to complete Judge 1 training:
Anyone who completes their Judge 1 online theory training by the 31 August 2021 with have until 31 July 2022 to complete their practical training
Anyone who completes their Judge 1 online theory training from 1 September 2021 onwards will have 11 months to complete their practical training
Points to note:
The date of completion of the theory training is the date on their certificate and not the date it is uploaded
It is important that candidates enter the correct date when uploading their certificate, otherwise it defaults to 1 January 2021 which may reduce the time available to complete the practical elements
Any practical training that has already been completed can be used, provided it meets the criteria for mentoring as laid down in the log book
Finally, please do not use any local “fixes” for candidates who have not received their log books. Log books are now being issued on a regular basis so if they are not being received, we need to know so we can establish why. Candidates should email [email protected]  with their membership number if they have been waiting more than 2 weeks from uploading their certificate.
Please ensure that all of this information is cascaded to your local Coordinators and onwards to the clubs.
Many thanks

Swimming Officials Coordinator
