Hosting Mini Trials
An agency desiring to host a certification process will contact the Region vice-president assigned to the agency’s area. He will in turn, notify the Region One President and attempt to contact all board members for approval. This certification process will be limited to a maximum number of thirty-five (35) canine teams. The minimum number will be left up to the area vice-president who will make the determination based upon the judges’ availability and that the trial will be self-supporting.
The registration fee for the certification process will be seventy-five dollars ($75.00) or as set by the Executive Board. Each additional certification is twenty-five dollars ($25.00). Example: If a handler is certifying PD1 and Detector, PD1 – $75.00 + Detection $25.00 for a total of $100.00
The host agency will select the chief judge and judges for this event. The host agency will contact the judges’ committee for approval of the utilized judges.
