These standardization meetings are scheduled for six different dates in 2019, spread across five locations in the United States and one location in Germany. The meetings are now required for all Coach Examiners in addition to AFF and Tandem Instructor Examiners. At each venue, the schedule will begin at 8:00 a.m., include a 1 hour lunch and conclude at approximately 6:00 p.m. The individual days must be completed in their entirety, but the individual methods can be completed at different locations:
Day 1: Coach Examiners
Day 2: Coach, Tandem and AFF Instructor Examiners
Day 3: Tandem Instructor Examiners
Day 4: AFF Instructor Examiners
*Day 2 is required for all examiners. It will contain information that is common for all examiners. The other three days will be for the specific examiner rating. Getting back to a two-day agenda allows for an expanded schedule that brings back valuable content to the meeting to make it a worthwhile program for all the disciplines. The continuing education will help create a stronger and more knowledgeable group of examiners.
