We've had a good response to our offer of Judge's and Table Captain's Certification training at the AMPS 2015 International Convention. This training will be conducted 30 April 2015 from 6:30-8:00 PM at the National Military History Center's WWII Victory Museum, Auburn, IN. The Judge’s Certification training will be held in the Seminar Room (North Theater) and the Table Captain’s Certification training will be held in the General’s Quarters.
Judge’s Certification Training: The purpose of Judge’s Certification training is to build a corps of judges who understand and can consistently apply the AMPS judging criteria at the local, regional and international levels of competition. The certification process includes two hours of classroom instruction on the AMPS Judging Criteria. In addition, each candidate must successfully perform at least two judging sessions as a Field Judge.
Table Captain’s Certification Training: The purpose of this training is to focus on leadership and managing the flow at the judging table. In order to take the Table Captain's Certification training each candidate must be AMPS certified judges and have judged at previous AMPS international and regional competitions. This training offers candidates an opportunity to take a closer look at leading a judging table and requires participating in at least two judging shifts as a Table Captain. Upon successfully completing this certification process the candidates will be awarded certification as an AMPS Table Captain.
If you are interested in either of these training opportunities, please e-mail me at email@example.com or through the AMPS web-site at http://www.amps-armor.org/ampssite/sendMail.aspx?Who=22.
