International Sport Federations are obligated to implement Classification education and awareness programmes for athletes, athlete support personnel and any other stakeholder (media, spectators).  

Such programmes must describe and explain Classification Rules and clarify Compliance with the Code. International Sport Federations must involve athletes in the development and delivery of such education and awareness programmes. (IPC Athlete Classification Code Article 10.1)    


International Sport Federations must provide training and education to ensure classifiers obtain and/or maintain classifier competencies. In many cases (part of) these courses are open for any individual that wants to learn more about classification in a particular sport.  

 For any further details, please contact the respective International Sport Federation who will be able to provide further information about the upcoming courses and requirements. Please visit respective sport website for more information.
