JUDGES

This is the Governing Body for Judges and is accredited to SACC. Judges must choose to belong to one of the four recognized SACC Judge Panels which make up the Judges Council. Each panel, on a 3 yearly rotational basis, is responsible for all administration aspects of Judges Council as well as being required to  organize a General Meeting, Symposium and Workshop at the end of its tenure.

JUDGE EDUCATION

After extensive training a SACC trainee judge is examined on theoretical knowledge of the breed/s being studied, followed by practical assessment of the breed/s. Thereafter a period of probation judging, determined by their training panel, will be undertaken; upon satisfactory culmination of this probation period, the trainee will be qualified to judge at SACC Championship Shows.
