To reserve your place we are offering a new online service where you can sign in to your Marshals Account online and select "Training" to book a place directly, this is the quickest way to reserve your place with us.

Alternatively, you can send us an email, stating the date you wish to book plus your full name, warrant card number and phone number to: training@iomttmarshals.com, and if places remain we will allocate you one.

PLEASE NOTE - these IMCs are open to all registered marshals and who have completed at least three sessions on the TT course.  Places are offered on a strictly first-come-first-served basis. Priority will be given to marshals who have not done an IMC or whose IMC will have expired by TT 2023.

The courses run from 8.45am to 5pm (approx.), they are free of charge, and we provide a light lunch and tea/coffee.  Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a coat as the training involves some role play, including kneeling and sitting on the floor inside the building, and a session outside.  Further details will be supplied in your booking confirmation email.

PLEASE NOTE - all courses are subject to change and may need to be moved or cancelled due to matters beyond our control such as pandemic or attendance numbers as a result.

Novice marshals

All new TT marshals, even if you have previous marshalling experience at other venues or in other motorsports, must watch our introductory film before being placed out on the course with one of our experienced teams of TT Marshals.

Watching and learning the ropes from our longstanding, knowledgeable volunteers is an important part of your training and gives new recruits the opportunity to experience marshalling, and ask plenty of questions, while enjoying the camaraderie of being part of the team.

To aid your training, we highly recommend you take time to watch all our training films and read the “Marshalling Matters” booklet before you report for duty. After you have completed at least three sessions out on the course we encourage you to undertake our Incident Management Course.  All novice marshals must complete an IMC before they gain full marshal accreditation.

Experienced marshals

In 2019 we introduced a new online learning platform with a number of training modules to complete. In addition, we recommend you regularly update your training by attending the Incident Management Course (IMC) and using our print and film materials. Before every event you should re-watch all our training films, re-read the “Marshalling Matters” booklet and, if possible, attend our drop-in refresher session too.

Incident Management Course (IMC)

Tailor-made for the TT course, this day-long session provides more in-depth information about the use of flags, radios and other equipment. It also covers procedures for breakdowns and incidents, and it provides you with a set of skills to help ensure you and your marshalling colleagues, the riders and spectators remain as safe as possible. We encourage all registered marshals, whether novice or experienced, to complete our Incident Management Course.

Refresher courses

These hands-on events cover use of radios and flags, incident management, and safety issues. Held just before every event, the course is an ideal opportunity for you to become re-acquainted with the equipment and ask questions of our trainers and other senior marshals present. We highly recommend all registered marshals, whether novice or experienced, attend these courses. No booking is necessary and course details are publicised in advance of each event.
