Want to be a judge?
We are pleased to announce the Exemplar Program, a community-driven and Senior Judge designed peer-recognition system where L2+ judges will have the opportunity to recognize judges of all levels throughout the world.
With the new set we also have a couple of policy changes affecting mainly the Infraction Procedure Guide (IPG) and the Judging at Regular (JAR). Various High Level judges share their perspective on the changes that will help you getting familiar with them as soon as possible.
Andrew Heckt made public that effective August 1st, 2014 there will be a new definition for Level 2. This includes the definition, the pre-certification interview requirements, the certification items itself and also a set of recommended items, that should be met by candidates when advancing to Level 2. For full details check the announcement on Judge Apps. If you have any questions, feel free to contact any Level 3+ judge.
