Training to be a judge is a very practical affair. It takes place at tournaments from when you are starting out as a Candidate judge, and then progresses through conferences and by similar means when you want to progress up the judging pathway.
The judging pathway and re-accreditation system is described in the Judging Handbook, and also in the J10 form. You can find both of those in the Useful Resources for Judges document library, in the Judges Handbook and Forms sections respectively.
In the library, you can also find presentations from conferences which contain helpful advice on keeping your judging skills current. Another part of the Library contains Training and Exam Resources – if you think we have missed something, or you would like to see something added to this part, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
The next Candidate Judge Seminar will be held dependent on requirements, dates to be published shortly.

Training is provided by experienced officials who are keen to welcome you into judging. The training is broken down into sections:
