New learning platform introduced for all Marshals

For TT 2019 we have introduced a new learning platform in partnership with ItsLearning. 

All Marshals that are registered for TT 2019 will be automatically sent an email from ItsLearning within 48 hrs of registering. It is mandatory for all Marshals to complete the courses before they are allowed to marshal at their designated point on the course. 

The courses can be accessed here. Please login using your registered email address and the password provided from ItsLearning.

Please note that every marshal who has registered for TT 2019 will need to complete the online modules, regardless of their marshal status and when their IMC qualification is due.

We encourage all our registered marshals to complete our Incident Management Course (IMC), take part in our regular refresher courses, watch our online training films and read our annually-updated Marshalling Matters booklet. View all our 2019 IMC and refresher training dates

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

We recommend you regularly update your training. 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.  

2019 IMC training dates 

IMC courses are held at various venues around England as well as on the island throughout the year (usually February to November).  We also hold a small number of courses during each practice week (in May and August), booking priority for these courses are given to off-island marshals.

The courses are open to all our registered marshals who have completed at least three sessions on the TT course.  Places must be booked via email and are offered on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.  To reserve your place, please email us stating the course venue and date you wish to book plus your full name, warrant card number and phone number: book by email now.

The courses run from 8.45am to 5pm (approx), they are free of charge, and we provide 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.
