How do I become a qualified IFBB judge?

The new judges’ course will be presented every year. All aspiring judges should attend the course and write and pass the exam involved. Should you be interested in becoming a judge/statistician but the new judges course is not presented in your Province, you may attend the course in another Province.  The new judges’ course will be held at least once in the beginning of the year between 15 January and 28 February.

Each applicant is expected to put all their efforts and dedication in to the NEW JUDGES COURSE for one full season. Judging for the IFBB is a commitment made by individuals and should be considered a long-term dedication. The New Judges Course should be completed by those truly interested in furthering the process to become a true Judge of the IFBB.

 

Each applicant will be asked to fill out an official document which will pledge their commitment, and as this is done he/she automatically then become an official of the IFBB, and is bound by the RULES, REGULATIONS and CRITERIA as set out by the IFBB.

 

This course is a one full bodybuilding and fitness season commitment (i.e. for one year).

You will be required to complete the theory course, write and pass the exam and trial judge at three required shows within that same year.

 

The new applicant will need to attend the “full day” theory course – and a week later to attend the theory exam (the date / time and venue will be given to you by the Chief Judge).   The new applicant will need to pass the theory exam with no less than 80%. Many candidates will pass first time, but for those that do not make this pass grade, a rewrite can be arranged for yet another week later.

 

Once successful with the theory - the new trainee judge will then move on to the three TRIAL JUDGING SESSIONS within the same year– and must attain a minimum score of 70% for each one.

 

Once qualified as a Provincial judge, you can progress to becoming a National/International/Elite Pro judge.  The requirements of progressing will be addressed during the judges’ course.

 

 

How do I become a qualified IFBB statistician?
