NATIONAL BASIC CLASSIFIER TRAINING
MARCH 22ND – 23RD 2014, DUBLIN
As part of the Paralympics Ireland National Classification Strategy, Paralympics Ireland is running
a National Basic Classifier Training to recruit new classifiers to assist in the classification of sport.
Classifiers are officials who provide sport specific assessments, to determine in which class an
athlete with a disability will compete. Classifiers work closely with the Head of Classification at
Paralympics Ireland and other national classifiers. While classifiers work in a voluntary capacity at
a regional and national level, all costs associated with travel are covered.
The course, aims to provide a point of entry to those looking to get involved in classification of
athletes nationally. It ensures those who complete the programme have a greater knowledge, skillset
and competence of what is expected as a Classifier.
