FIFe Student Judges

FIFe Student Judges represent the future of FIFe. They are, as the title implies, individuals studying to become judges, some for the first time, (under the guidance of a mentor judge), others in a category different from the one in which they are already qualified.
During their training the students will sit with different international FIFe judges during cat shows in order to receive expert instruction and to become familiar with breeds they hope one day to judge. They will also attend seminars and visit breeders to learn as much as they can about their chosen breeds.

Important documents for a student judge

With regard to the student judges training we would like to draw your attention to the following documents which are available for downloading on this site:
- the FIFe Statutes and Rules in the section Rules & Forms
- the FIFe standards of the breeds for each category, as well as the General Part to these standards, in the section Breeds
- an explanation of the FIFe Easy Mind System (EMS) in the section EMS system
- the complete list of EMS codes for the breeds and their varieties in the section Rules & Forms
- the various forms for student judges in the section Rules & Forms.

Keeping track of student judge activities & Judges examination application

A tool has been developed to facilitate FIFe Members and their student judges in getting an overview of their activities; it can be used for European student judges as well as for non-European student judges. This new tool is an Excel spreadsheet which contains several so-called "worksheets".
Each category has its own worksheet (I, II, III, IV) which can be used in the following ways:
- by entering information regarding all past student judge activities when applying for the examination
- by entering information regarding each student judge activity separately right after each activity during the training period.
The tool must be used by FIFe Members when applying for examinations for their student judges; to this purpose the worksheet "Exam application" is made available.
The advantage of the worksheets is that it will show in one glance which requirements as laid down in the student judges training rules are met and which ones are not.
The tool is available for downloading in the section Rules & Forms under the header "Forms": Student Judge Final Examination Application.
It is highly recommended to read the contents of the worksheet "Intro" which gives an explanation how the spreadsheet is set up and how it can be used.

Important notice about the student judge training rules

We have noticed a lack of clarity and sometimes confusion amongst student judges as to which version of the rules regarding the student judge training applies to them. Some student judges are under the impression that these are the rules which were valid on the moment they started their training as a student judge. However, this is a misconception.
Any change in a rule with regard to the student judge training is applicable to every student judge, no matter when the training started.
To avoid any misunderstanding or disappointment, we urge our members and our student judges to take good notice of this matter.
