You can find out about the information and experience needed for each level of judging and how to move between the grades in this document. J10-National Judging Scheme

This provides details of the number of days judging, the type of shoots those days must be at, and the seminars or conferences which have to be attended along with details of the practical and written examinations.

Practical examinations are organised through the JLO for County and Regional assessments and through the National Committee for national assessments.

The written examinations are administered at the end of the appropriate seminars which are run by the National Committee. The County/Youth seminar is two days and the Regional Seminar is a single day of interactive content and are designed to pass on the required knowledge for each grade in a way which is consistent across the country.
