This is a reminder to all CKC Conformation Judges, that the current term to comply with the 5 Year Education Portfolio policy expires on December 31, 2017.
This means that all Conformation Judges that were licensed, or on permit, in 2008 or earlier, that have already complied with this policy for the term 2008 to 2012, must submit a new 5 Year Education Portfolio (for the term 2013 to 2017) to the Shows and Trials Division at CKC Head Office no later than December 31, 2017. Policy and Procedures, Chapter VII, Section B, Sub section 8:
8. Licensing Maintenance for All - Breed, Groups and Breed Judges
c) Licensed judges are encouraged and expected to engage in a self-directed program of professional development. Recognizing that a judge has a commitment to on-going education, all judges will maintain an educational portfolio with appropriate documentation and/or certification. This portfolio will be reviewed and approved by The Canadian Kennel Club at the end of each five (5) year cycle.
Should a judge fail to meet these requirements, the judge’s license will be held in abeyance until such time that the requirement is met.
Judges that were issued their initial judging permit after 2008, will be required to submit a 5 Year Education Portfolio within 5 years of the year in which the initial permit was issued.
Please be reminded that judges are only required to meet 1 criteria from Category A and 1 criteria
from Category B. When submitting the portfolio is would be helpful if there is a completed Conformation Checklist 5 Year Education Portfolio attached. This form is on the CKC website at www.ckc.ca
under the Events tab, then Event Forms in the drop down menu, and then under Judge Forms.
