Please can we ask for patience (a good judging virtue) from all judges and would-be judges who have tried to access the On Line Judges Training Courses. These are still under construction and those that are completed need to be updated with the regulation changes.
The Judges committee and the Judge Training Co-ordinator, Karla Cole are working hard to bring the system up to date, and to have it available as soon as possible.
Meanwhile if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact either Pia Beggren (Committee Chair) or Karla Cole via the FAI.
