For motorsport enthusiasts who want to be a part of motorsport’s action-packed journey, they need look no further than becoming an EMSO sanctioned official.
EMSO comes with a wealth of resources and dedicated professionals ready to guide anyone from a seasoned professional to a novice as they embark on this motorsport adventure.

Applying the latest trends and technology, EMSO’s e-learning platform provides an enhanced set of programmes that are mandatory for every motorsport official to undertake before attending events.

Each individual is provided training, free of cost, on the different verticals of motorsport officiating, and each course concludes with a test. Successful candidates are then inducted into officiating events where they undergo a more hands-on approach to their training.

The Officials Management System (OMS) is a skill-based system that generates the events that an individual is qualified to officiate. To qualify for more high risk, high reward roles, officials must continually update themselves with courses, and must play an active role in both in-house and virtual training.

EMSO and Abu Dhabi Motorsport Management (ADMM) renewed their long-term partnership and the two organizations continue to thrive in their respective roles.

The renewed partnership sees the two entities continuing their work to develop motorsport in the Emirates, and this includes the advancement and development of Abu Dhabi based race officials and marshals.

ADMM, alongside EMSO, are the engine that drives the delivery of the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Both parties share an ethos of premium standards of organization and share the stage as they contribute to the sport through the biggest event in the UAE.

This year the trainings have started earlier, and last month saw sessions already being conducted at the Yas Marina Circuit and Dubai Autodrome. These classes were not only for existing trainees but were also open to newcomers in intervention and flagging, with training for all roles divided according to levels of experience.

In total 56 training sessions are scheduled between June and the end of the year. Separate sessions will be organized for intervention, flag officials, secretaries of the meeting, recovery, radio communications for circuit and off-road disciplines, stewards, pitlane officials, rescue, and extrication.

All registered and approved officials will find information about upcoming trainings in the Officials Management System: https://oms.emso.ae/login
