Act as a steward at motor sport events

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: September 2018


This unit describes the performance outcomes required to act as a steward at a motor sport event. It requires strong verbal and written communication skills, as well as extensive knowledge of the conduct of the applicable motor sport category, its rules and regulations, and its judiciary processes.

The steward is usually appointed by the motor sport controlling body and has the authority to act on the body’s behalf to ensure the event is conducted in compliance with all applicable rules and regulations. This includes ensuring all aspects of the event organisation meet requirements before the event can proceed. During the event, the steward must ensure it is conducted according to the rules and regulations and has the power to stop the event or suspend participants. The steward can also adjudicate on protests, disputes or breaches of the rules.

It applies to those working in the motor sport industry.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
