What We Offer
FINA’s online learning goal is to offer to all its National Member Federations a platform to promote and educate coaches, officials, administrators, and anyone related to aquatics. It shares and teaches the best and latest trends and techniques and promotes aquatics worldwide.
FINA’s Coaches Certification Programme offers the possibility to the aquatics coaches to certify their level of skills, knowledge and competencies in coaching. The goal of this programme is to support coaches worldwide and the development of swimming, as well as offer a networking and knowledge-sharing environment for all National Federations.
FINA’s Officials’ Education Programme enable Officials, Judges and Referees to officiate in FINA events such as FINA World Cups and FINA World Championships. The aim is to increase the number of Technical Officials and enhance the quality of the existing ones and create a uniform pattern of interpretation and application of rules across all aquatic disciplines, thus raising the quality of officiating.
The Aquatics Manager’s Education Programme educates the FINA National Member Federations on how to strategically plan their activities in order to promote aquatics in the best way within their country. It aims to support the Federations in their efforts to manage and administer their organisation, as well as increase their management competencies.
