Judges and CSDs are the backbone of USCSS™. They must have a full understanding of the Official Rules, how the Classes and Games are to be organized, designed, run and officiated as well as understand their overall roles at a trial.
While a requirement for all USCSS™ officials, competitors will also find this course exceedingly helpful.
There is so much more to being an official with USCSS™ than simply saying "Yes" or "No" when you are a Judge or setting hides when you are the CSD. These officials are the face of the organization, help set the tone of the entire trial and can help set competitors up to succeed or fail. This course goes into depth what all Judges and CSDs should do and consider.
CEUS for Officials:
Auditors: 3 CEUs with United States Canine Scent Sports
Watchers: 1 CEUs with United States Canine Scent Sports

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Probably sound like a broken record, but its easy to follow, makes me (and therefore my dog) enthusiastic, go at my own pace.Introducing Birch Course
What did you enjoy about this course? Took me out of my comfort zone. Making me keep training logs. Teaching me to break down behaviors. That is huge because all I ever see is what I need to work on.Now What Do I Do?! Course
I liked the pace of the course, how the material was presented and most importantly all of the wonderful feedback. I think the at-home learning experience was far better, due to the enormous amount of feedback (and encouragement!) that we would not get as much of in a live class.Introduction to Scent Work Course
The explanation followed by the videos to show the skill or skills. That was helpful. The feedback on my videos was also helpful. The practices each week- gold!NW3 Trial Prep Course
