BWF NATIONAL LEVEL 1 CLASSIFIER WORKSHOP
BWF National Classifier workshops involve a combination of theory and observation sessions, and are designed to support National Badminton Associations, who wish to deliver Para badminton activities and tournaments in their country.
WHO CAN ATTEND
The National Level 1 Classifier Workshop is open to anyone with an interest in Para badminton and athlete classification. The course does not require a background in the field of medicine or physiotherapy, however to progress to the National Level 2 Classifier Workshop a medical or physiotherapy qualification is a prerequisite.
We therefore advise Member Associations and National Paralympic Committees to select representatives based on their long-term plans to develop a national classifier workforce. Please note that attending these workshops does not qualify a person to classify athletes at an international level.

The aims/objectives of the National Level 1 Classifier Workshop are:
- To introduce the theory of classification in Para badminton.
- To introduce the Minimal Impairment Criteria and show how these are applied in Player Evaluation.
- To observe Player Evaluation under supervision and identify the stages and the roles of the Classifier in the process.
