British Cycling provides courses and assessment for Trainee, Regional B, Regional A and National Commissaires.

Commissaires are involved at all levels across all disciplines, as shown in the commissaire framework.

If you are passionate about supporting cycle sport across any discipline, find out more below about getting started and progressing your journey.

Trainee to Regional B: The first step on your officiating pathway is to become a trainee commissaire in your chosen discipline. This role allows you to grow your knowledge and understanding through online learning, classroom tutoring and supervised practical experience at events.

Following assessment at events, you will become a Regional B commissaire and be licenced to perform commissaire duties in support of the chief commissaire at events. Regional B commissaires are not able to be chief commissaires.

Trainee Commissaire course information

Regional A: If you wish to become a chief commissaire at regional events, you will need to attend a course to train and be assessed to become a regional A commissaire. 

Regional A Course Information

National: The next level up is national commissaire which permits you to be a chief commissaire at national events. As a rough guide, you will have a minimum of two seasons’ experience as a regional commissaire before applying for the national commissaire training.
