Requests to run additional courses

The AWF is frequently asked whether it is possible to run additional courses in locations other than specified in the AWF Coach Education Program calendar. For example, a business owner will enquire whether it is possible for the AWF to conduct a course at their business.

Any business owner or manager who wishes the AWF to conduct a course at their business premises should take notice of the following:

  1. While it is possible for the AWF to provide additional courses at venues and locations, it very much depends on the availability of presenters. Our presenters are often unavailable due to overseas committments or indeed the AWF's domestic competition calendar.
  2. The AWF can only contemplate running an additional course if the business owner can guarantee sufficient participants. The number of participants required depends on a number of factors including the location of the proposed additional course.
  3. Business owners should download the venue requirements checklist and determine whether they can meet these requirements,
  4. If a business owner or manager believes they can meet AWF's venue standards and that it is likely that an additional course will be well supported in terms of participation, they should write to the Manager - Industry Partnerships. Australian Weightlifting Federation, at education@awf.com.au
