Stage Commander refresher training


Fifteen delegates and four future trainers took part in the first oneday MSA Rally Stage Commander
refresher training in Bolton on 4 August, delivered by MSA Trainer, Jon Binns.

Initial feedback has been excellent and nominations are still being accepted for the two remaining courses in 2018:

  • 24 November: Stirling
  • 9 December: Donington, East Midlands.

These non-mandatory workshops are designed to ensure that all who undertake the role of a Rally Stage Commander remain equipped to meet the challenges of the role and understand the latest Stage Rally Safety Requirements (Edition 4).

All currently registered Stage Commanders are invited to attend, along with anyone who has performed the role in the last three years, providing that they have completed the MSA’s online rally marshal training modules.

A mileage allowance will be payable and as always, car sharing is encouraged. Those needing to fly can claim up to the equivalent maximum mileage rate of £75 in total. The MSA is unable to pay any accommodation costs, however the workshops have been scheduled to allow suitable travel time.

The workshops will provisionally run from 09.30 to 17.00; full details will be confirmed closer to the event dates. Final joining instructions will indicate lunch arrangements.
