ASADA Level 2 anti-doping education course

 

ASADA’s Level 2: 2020 anti-doping course is now live and available on ASADA eLearning.

 

The course is for athletes, support personnel and other members of the Australian sporting community highlighting changes to the WADA Prohibited List, as well as other anti-doping information that’s vital to know for 2020. The course can be accessed by anyone who has already completed the Level 1 anti-doping course, which is also available on the eLearning site.

 

If you have any questions about Level 2: 2020, or any other ASADA online courses, get in touch with the ASADA Education team at education@asada.gov.au.

 

Please keep an eye on our social media pages for announcements about the course so you can easily share the details with your athletes.

 

2020 Prohibited List

 

One of the main topics covered in the Level 2 anti-doping course is the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) 2020 Prohibited List (the Prohibited List), which will come into effect on 1 January 2020.

 

The Prohibited List is available on WADA’s website along with a summary of major modifications and Monitoring Program.  Our science team has put together a fact sheet with the main changes to the Prohibited List. This fact sheet is attached for you to share with your athletes.

 

Please ensure your state affiliates, athletes, team managers, medical officials and other support persons are aware of the Prohibited List updates, and remind athletes it is their responsibility to check the status of any medication or substance prior to use.

 

We will also be communicating the Prohibited List directly to athletes and support personnel through our communication channels, including the ASADA website and our social media. We strongly encourage you to like, share and retweet to ensure the message gets out to your athletes.

 

We would appreciate your assistance and have enclosed for your use a social media tile which can accompany the following message:

‘Changes to the WADA Prohibited List come into effect on 1 January 2020. Make sure you know what the changes are’ - https://www.asada.gov.au/news/2020-prohibited-list
