TTR/WSF Certification Protocol
The TTRs goal is to send the best possible judges to each competition.
The level and type of competition determines the certification required of the judges. After the competition schedule has been established, the TTR will determine how many judges will be needed for the upcoming season. The TTR will select, for 4*- 6* events the best possible judges out of the pool of those who participated in the certification / recertification process.
The certification process also includes regional aspects to meet the organizers’ needs. Therefore the competition between judges within a region is of great importance. To get certified as a Pro Judge, you have to work harder than ever before to be in the top group of judges out of your region. The TTR Judge Symposiums are a good platform for you to present your knowledge and capabilities.
