PATRICK MUDGE IS OUR ON LINE EDUCATION COORDINATOR.  PLEASE CONTACT HIM IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PROVIDE A TOPIC.

If you have an educational seminar coming up or are able to offer ringside mentoring at a specialty, please send an e-mail to the CDJA Secretary and your educational opportunity will be posted on the Upcoming Seminars page.

Please check out the Upcoming Seminar & Ringside Mentoring Page under the EVENTS tab - there are lots of other educational opportunities posted on this page!


Recently, the CKC Event Officiating Committee was questioned with regard to the CKC/CDJA Advanced Judges seminar and the ability to use the breeds presented within the seminar towards relevant education for conformation judges.

  • Our practice is that the CKC/CDJA Advanced Judges seminar can only be used as one (1) seminar.  However, the breeds presented within the seminar can be used separately for education related to a conformation judge’s permit application.
    While we do not issue separate certificates for the individual breeds, if the permit applicant indicates on the application that they attended a CKC/CDJA Advanced Judges Seminar where a specific applicable breed was presented and the date, CKC staff will verify that person was in attendance and which breeds were presented  that could be used.

    The Event Officiating Committee agreed that it was not necessary to add or amend the policy in this regard, but wanted to ensure that permit judges were made aware.
    Please note that individual breed presentations or ringside mentoring presented within the CKC/CDJA Advanced Judges Seminar cannot be used for the 5 Year Education Portfolio.  Only the entire seminar as a complete package can be used to fulfil a Category for the 5 Year Education Portfolio. 

  • The updated Conformation Judges Permit Education Checklist is available on the website for reference.
