World Aquatics Open Water Rules updates

In order to enable existing Open Water Officials to continue to operate at Open Water events, Swim England have put together the World Aquatics Rules Update for Open Water Officials module.

This module will eventually be offered as an eLearning CPD for new and existing judges however in the meantime we ask all Judges to read the document on the link below and pass the exam at the end. Success in the exam will be entered onto the officials’ membership records.
