ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATIONS FOR WCF JUDGES
If a trained judge applies for an additional hair category, he has to work at international shows as a student judge
before he can take a further examination. Between the examinations in the categories LH-SLH, on the one hand,
and SH- SIA/ORI, on the other hand, a waiting period of at least 24 months is required.
If a judge takes an examination for an additional hair category, he is not allowed to officiate at the same time as
a judge at the same show or perform other activities. This is also valid for two one-day-shows.
For an additional qualification (i.e. an examination for a further hair category) a period of training of no more than
four years is valid as well.
In further WCF-examinations the 15 general questions are not applicable.
In such cases the theoretical examination consists of 30 questions of the examined hair category.
The time at the disposal of the examinee is 90 minutes.
For the number of student judge certificates for the additional qualification of an international judge the following is valid:
- Longhair (LH): 15 certificates only in this category
- Semi-longhair (SLH): 20 certificates only in this category
- Shorthair (SH): 20 certificates only in this category
- Siamese/Oriental breeds (SIA/ORI): 10 certificates only in this category
That means, regardless of the previous qualification of the judge the afore mentioned student judge certificates have to be presented.
Special regulation for Longhair judges
Longhair judges are allowed to judge Exotic Shorthair cats at exhibitions without a special additional qualification,
provided that this is requested by the organizing club.
