*Please note candidates can only attend one course per day as courses will be run at the same time.

The aim of the Bronze Examiner Assessment Course is to provide a route to examine Good Citizen Dog Scheme tests, eligible for instructors who have a minimum of 5 years involvement with the Scheme. This may include being part of a training club, taking part in a test with your own dog, and/or stewarding/ assisting a test. Candidates will also require 3 years dog training instructing experience in a class situation and can show where they have instructed a class without assistance. This course will also be beneficial to current Scheme Examiners who are already qualified but wish to develop their knowledge.

Candidates who attend the course and successfully achieve a 'pass' grade will be approved to examine the Bronze Award and placed on the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Examiner 'A3' list. Results of the assessment will be given at the end of the course day and successful candidates will receive a certificate of confirmation.

Silver Examiner Courses

Candidates who attend the course and successfully achieve a 'pass' grade will be approved to examine the Silver Award and placed on the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Examiner 'A2"' list. Results of the assessment will be given at the end of the course day and successful candidates will receive a certificate of confirmation.

Gold Examiner Assessment Courses

The aim of this Examiner Assessment Course is to provide a route to examine the Good Citizen Dog Scheme Gold Award level.

Candidates who attend the course and successfully achieve a 'pass' grade will be approved to examine the Gold Award and placed on the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Examiner 'A1' List.
