Officials Training


All MNZ Permitted Events require trained Officials of the correct grade. Without Officials, events cannot be run. If you can lend your time to help run and administer events, you should consider coming along and training to be an Official. 

The training seminars are designed to provide new and existing Officials with the most up to date information as to what is required and how to carry out the duty of the role of Stewards, Clerk of the Course and Marshalls (Riding, Track, Flag etc...). For more information please follow see How to become an Official

To register for the training seminar nearest to you please complete the below online registration.

Training seminars cater for new and existing Officials.

Officials must attend seminars every 2 years to maintain their qualifications.

Hosting Training Seminars

The reason for using local clubs to host these training sessions is to keep costs down.
We also sometimes get a chance to see your facilities and gain a greater understanding of your situation.

Most expenses can be reimbursed if you keep to the requirements below:

  • Venue to be supplied by the club (clubrooms, local hall, etc). It is not expected, nor warranted, to be an expensive conference centre. The idea is to keep it as cheap as possible by using your local knowledge and resources/clubrooms.
  • Lunch, tea and coffee are supplied by the club and can be reimbursed. The expectation is for nothing flash (examples are: BBQs, Pizzas, sandwiches or a cheap 'Sunday Roast' at the local pub).
  • At larger seminars we sometimes need two separate rooms. This way the groups being trained are smaller which means more can be covered. It also means we can split the groups into Road and Off Road in some cases so the examples given are relatable. 
  • A projector is required for each room. One can be arranged by us; but not a screen. If this proves to be a problem to arrange let us know so we can prepare an alternative. 
  • Ideal group size is roughly 12-20 people.
  • Training is held on either a Saturday or Sunday and starts around 9:30am and finishing around 3pm.
  • Tables and chairs will be needed. All stationery will be provided. New officials will be sent a copy of the Manual of Motorcycle Sport which they must bring with them.
