FEI Board Approved New Virtual Maintenance Programme Courses for Group B Officials
In light of the challenges for Group B Officials to attend in-person Maintenance Courses as a result of Covid-19, the Board agreed to maintain the requirement for an existing in-person Maintenance Course and to provide an “Emergency Virtual Maintenance Programme” as a second option.
Group B Officials will now have two options to choose from:
- Option 1: In-person Maintenance Course – choice by default
- Option 2: Emergency Virtual Maintenance Programme – on request & sign-up
In May, all Group B Officials will receive an email from the FEI to advise on how to proceed and select their preferred option with a deadline to reply of 1 June 2021. National Federations will be kept updated on the relevant timelines and next steps in the coming weeks.
From 2022 onwards, all Officials will be required to pass an annual CES Online Assessment, and to attend at least one in-person or virtual maintenance course every three years.
