UIPM Para-Sport: how you can become a classifier

Para Pentathlon

UIPM joined the International Paralympic Committee in 2014 and today a new appeal is launched to give people the opportunity to join the UIPM Para-Sport movement.

With each year UIPM is taking steps to give more sporting opportunities to disabled athletes worldwide, and the 2018 season will see the introduction of Para-LaserRun.

The next stage of the programme is to find and recruit official classifiers who can support UIPM Para-Sport, and the application process is open.

So what is a classifier? Here are some of the required criteria:

·       Some knowledge of UIPM Sports (and/or Para-Sport)

·       A professional qualification in medicine or physiotherapy

·       An interest in the Para-Sport movement

All training and certification will be provided by UIPM. During classification events, classifiers will receive professional expenses including per diem payments and travel insurance.
