IADO on November 21st, 2024 invited lecturers from various well-known universities to conduct discussions related to training methods and qualifications of prospective educators on Anti-Doping. They were Prof. Dr. Ria Lumintuarso, M.Si. from Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta (UNY), Prof. Dr. Tandiyo Rahayu, M.Pd. from Universitas Negeri Semarang (UNNES), Dr. Mirza Hapsari Sakti Titis Penggalih, S.Gz, M.P.H., RD. from Gadjah Mada University (UGM) and Natashya Marcellina Ardiany, S.Pd., S.M., MA. from IADO as the Director of Education, and the moderator of that FGD was dr. Rizky Patria Nevangga, M.Or who is a lecturer from the State University of Surabaya (UNESA). On that occasion, IADO also invited qualified representatives from the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology, the Ministry of Health Affairs, Indonesian Commision for UNESCO, NOC Indonesia, NPC Indonesia and KONI (National Sports Committee of Indonesia).

The discussion group was opened by the Chairman of IADO, Mr. Gatot S. Dewa Broto. After being opened, it was continued by a presentation from Natashya Marcellina Ardiany, S.Pd., S.M., MA as the Director of Education who gave an explanation of why it was necessary to conduct a Focus Group Discussion related to Anti-Doping education presenters. According to her, one of the reasons was so that the dissemination of information, and anti-doping education activities could not yet be carried out more quickly and spread throughout Indonesia, because at the time being the education directorate only had three personnel to carry out anti-doping education. Consequently, prior to the recruitment and multiplication of anti-doping educators it was necessary to meet stakeholders regarding how anti-doping educator training methods, and their qualifications should be set up. Therefore, the Focus Group Discussion on the Preparation of Anti-Doping Educator Training (PRESI) for Phase I, needed to be carried out so that stakeholders were aware of IADO’s long-term plan to reproduce anti-doping educators.

Based on the results of this Focus Group Discussion, several points were obtained, namely, the methods used should be referred to WADA. In addition, the curriculum and training programs must be accredited so that it could produce standardized training with the wish that the human resources produced should be competent resources. Human resources who become anti-doping educators are authorized resources and are required to be re-authorized to extend their authority to provide anti-doping education. The targets who can become anti-doping educators are sports players such as former athletes, coaches, and athlete support personnel, sports teachers, and medical personnel. Furthermore, such professions can also be selected from non-sport players such as students, parents, and university communities. Monitoring and Evaluation of the Anti-Doping Educator plan is homework which is to be carried out by the Monev Team appointed at the Chapter II FGD.
