Controllers & Commentators

Although the roles of controller and commentator are voluntary, they are very involved roles and require a calm head, organisation, adaptability and the ability to ad-lib! To become an accomplished Controller and Commentator at a BE event involves much experience, but for those who wish to learn more about the role or take the first steps towards becoming a controller/commentator, BE often run 'Controller Induction Days' and have a clear process, via a Log Book, into becoming a BE recommended list of Controllers which is published every year. 

Once you have attended a training course (and even if you have not been able to), you next step is to contact your local 'Controller Mentor'. Read more about Controller Mentors.
