Annual Judges' Training Program & Resources for Judges

Judging Classes

Judging classes are held in Olympia and Burlington, Washington the weekend before the Federation show season begins; content will be identical at both locations. Classes will be offered for those advancing to candidate, accredited, and senior status. Classes are from 9 am to 3 pm; bring your own lunch.

Senior judges are encouraged to attend and participate. While senior judges typically attend the session for those advancing from accredited to senior status, senior judges are encouraged to attend the classes for candidate and accredited judges. Current senior judges are expected to participate and assist the instructors as needed.
