Judge Training Process

We are excited to hear interest in IJRU judge and clinician training. Here we’d like to provide some guidance and details for those interested in attending training and for groups hosting training. Please share feedback as we’re looking to constantly improve. 

The rules are currently in development and hopefully you are seeing updates here as the Technical Congress publishes information and collects feedback. This process will continue through June. In July at the first IJRU Annual General Meeting (AGM), the rules will be put up to a final vote. At the same time, IJRU will hold the first judge clinician (judge trainer) and judge training. There cannot be IJRU-sanctioned judge training before this event as the rules and materials will not be ready.  

The Tech Congress is building a working group to build the judge training materials. We are looking for experienced judge trainers from around the world drawing from both incoming organizations (FISAC-IRSF and WJRF). Please submit nominations here. (Please feel free to nominate yourself.) 

We are working on a process for approving, staffing, promoting and tracking IJRU judge training. If you are already planning IJRU judge training at your event or with your group and your country is a member of IJRU, please work with your country membership. Otherwise please email info@ijru.org with the details of your event. To be certified, all IJRU judge training events must be sanctioned and approved by the IRJU. Prior approval is required in advance to use IJRU’s name in promoting any event (judge training, competition or otherwise). We do this to set standards on quality and to ensure that the event is consistent with IJRU’s core values.
