The NW Region are running a range of courses for those wishing to qualify to become a synchro judge at various levels, or to update their existing judging qualifications to move in line with the new grading structure. Courses are being run at both levels – please see the chart below to ensure that you are applying to attend the correct type and level of course dependant on your current qualifications/experience. Only qualifications for judging will count for level 2 courses. If you previously hold an assessors’ qualification but no judging qualifications then you will need to attend the full Level 1 course. The NW Region will refund the cost of the course for all those who attend on the day.
Please see the events pages for details of the individual courses.
Please direct any questions about the courses to Sarah Clarke.
