Judges Competency Framework launched by the Kennel Club on 26th April 2017. 
A new system has been developed for the education, approval and listing of every level of judge, from those who aspire to judge, right through to open show judges and those who go on to award Challenge Certificates and judge championship show groups, and Best in Show.
The Judges Competency Framework will be launched in January 2019, run alongside the current system for a three-year transition period, and be fully operational from January 2022.
Please see the link on the right which takes you to the Kennel Club website with full details.
