JCF FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT IN 2020 AND AM CURRENTLY ON A BREED CLUB C LIST

JCF FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

QUESTION: I am currently on a breed club B list and have passed a breed-specific assessment. Under the JCF, where do I transition over to?

ANSWER: Provided you have met JCF Level 1 requirements and have a certificate to say you have passed some form of breed-specific assessment (either hands-on assessment or Multiple-choice Breed Standard Exam) you can register at JCF Level 2 and begin your mentoring.

Being at Level 2 will entitle you to judge an unlimited number of classes of the respective breed in a non-CC entry.

JCF FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

QUESTION: I am on an A3 judging list but have not been offered a CC appointment. What should I do now?

ANSWER: If you have any forthcoming appointments for the breed you should approach a breed club to ask to be assessed for the A2 route if you meet A3 list criteria. Details of the A2 procedure can be found here: bit.ly/2JpDwGW.

Once you are approved by the KC Judges Committee as an A2 judge you can transition over to JCF Level 4 and award CCs to the respective breed.

If you do not have any forthcoming appointments and you meet the criteria for A3 and are listed on a breed club A3 list you can take advantage of the ‘grandfathering route’ during 2021.

The criteria for this are listed at the following link: bit.ly/2VOkPDF. If approved by the KC via this route, you will transition over to JCF Level 4 and can award CCs to the respective breed.
