Athletics Fiji technical official, Sisilia Cokanauto is upgrading her skills as Oceania Athletics hosts the Technical Officials’ Education Certification System (TOECS) Level I Lectures Course that’s current­ly underway in Gold Coast, Australia.

Cokanauto has been an IAAF certified Level I Technical Official since 2015 and an active member of AF and the Fiji Primary Schools’ Athletics Association (FPSAA).

Her selection to attend the course is in direct alignment with Athletics Fiji’s strategic plan that includes training and development of coaches, athletes, administrators and technical officials, on boarding with AF and to have better alignment with FPSAA.

The Naseakula District School head teacher from La­basa is the president of the Northern Primary Schools’ Athletics Association.

She successfully co-ordinated and organised the annual FMF Northern Chow Games, officiated at the 2016 Mela­nesian Championships, technical official at the 2017 Oce­ania Area Championships.

“She will be looking to add the TOECS Level I Lectur­ers Certificate to her repertoire and hopefully join the few qualified IAAF technical official lecturers in Fiji,” stated Athletics Fiji in a press release.

The IAAF set up the TOECS to improve the level of ath­letics officiating all over the world, which means:

  1. Creating a basic level of officiating skills where noth­ing or a grass roots only situation exists and
  2. Improving the level of officiating skills where a sys­tem is already in place.

The operation of the TOECS is coordinated by the IAAF Development Department and the Regional Development Centers (RDCs).

The TOECS features standard learning materials and specifically trained lecturers.

Participants who successfully complete the course re­ceive an IAAF Level I Technical Official Lecturer Certifi­cate and make them eligible to deliver training for Level I technical officials within the country.
