Judges' Education Programme - Field Trials and Working Gundogs

The Judges Education Programme has been created to manage the understanding of the J Regulations for Field Trial judges, societies and competitors. This is done through seminars for each of the four sub groups followed by a multiple choice exam. From 1 January 2010 it is mandatory for all aspiring judges ie those hoping to go from Non Panel to B or from B Panel to A to have passed the exam.

Examples of how to lay out a Judges' Book

The Field Trial Judges Education Working Party has produced examples of how to lay out a Judges' Book, there is one for each of the sub-groups and a copy should be given to all Non-Panel Judges prior to undertaking their first judging appointment.
