Since 2014, and already for the 3rd time EPTU organises International Classifier Course which that time took place in Moldova, Chisinau from April 18 till April 20, 2015. The 3 days event was held during the 4th European Para-taekwondo Championships.
4 candidates to International Classifiers came from 3 European countries (Spain, Romania, Russia), and tried to do their best during the seminar to get WTF certificate of International Classifier. According to WTF Para-Taekwondo and Deaf-Taekwondo Classification Rules and Regulations (Articles 2.9-2.11), WTF certifies Classifiers who have abilities and qualifications relevant to conduct Athlete Evaluation in respect of Athletes with Physical, Visual, Hearing and/or Intellectual Impairment.
A three days course included as usual theoretical, practical and observation parts.
The 1st day candidates were introduced with classification rules, medical and technical procedures and codes.
The 2nd day candidates got a chance to try themselves in Classification as well as observed the process of Medical and Technical procedures.
The 3rd day: observations during competition under the supervision.
As of today, Europe counts already 3 International Classifiers who can participate in International para-taekwondo events doing the classification of athletes and their evaluation. 4 more candidates need to attend additional International Classifier Courses to get a certificate of International Classifier.
