“Take Control” Training Weekend with WRE Adviser Clinic


Orienteering Ottawa is hosting an exceptional weekend of events, training and workshops April 25 – 27, 2014. This is a great opportunity to train and race on the terrain you will meet up with at the 2014 North American Orienteering Championships in Arnprior, Canada in October. There will be 3 low-key races and 2 training sessions on the Carp Ridge (The Barrens map) and March Highlands. There will also be an IOF Event Adviser’s Clinic with David Rosen who is the chair of the IOF Rules Commission and the event adviser for the 2014 NAOCs. If you participate in the Event Adviser Clinic you can also participate in the sprint, middle and long races over the weekend.

Check out the event brochure for more details.

About the IOF Event Adviser Clinic
In order to host world ranking events (WRE) in Canada and the US , we are required to have an IOF accredited event advisor involved with the event. The list of event advisers in North America is small and both Orienteering Canada and Orienteering USA would like to increase the number of WRE event advisers in North America.

A WRE Event Adviser does not replace the role of the controller at an event. The event adviser assists in addition to the controller.

The IOF requirements to become a WRE event adviser in foot orienteering are:

  1. Be an active foot orienteer.
  2. Have competed in countries other than your own.
  3. Have successfully controlled major national events in the last 3 years.
  4. Be competent in the English language.
  5. Have attended, and have been an active participant in, an IOF Event Advisers Clinic
  6. Be familiar with the following IOF Publications:
    • Competition Rules for Foot Orienteering Events
    • International Specifications for Orienteering Maps
    • Control Descriptions
    • Principles for Course Planning
    • World Ranking Events Handbook
  7. Be recognised as a top standard controller/event adviser and endorsed as suitable by your national orienteering federation.

You can take the event adviser clinic before you’ve controlled a major national event. The requirements don’t need to be done in a specific order.
