Judges Training Scheme
Singapore Kennel Club has an agility judges training scheme that aims to train local agility enthusiasts to become judges for agility and jumpers trials. The scheme is fairly straightforward: one needs to meet certain criteria, go through training and judge a certain amount of trials before receiving accreditation from SKC and be able to take up judging assignments.
