Recertification options for NSBA Judges
Expiring February 2020

Judges whose credentials expire February 2020 will be able to take the online recertification or may attend the Color Breed Counsel Judges Session in Tulsa, Oklahoma January 28 - February 2, 2020.

All judges will be required to take an online rulebook test based on the official 2020 NSBA Handbook. The test will be available online beginning January 1.

Judges choosing to take the recertification online will be sent an email with instructions to access the online portal. They will then create a login that will grant them access to the website for 30 days. There is no limit to how many times a person can enter the website. Taking the online recertification will fulfill the requirement for an in-person seminar for your three year period. All judges will be required to take an online written rulebook exam annually to maintain NSBA judge status. 

Required for All Judges
2020 Online Written Rulebook Test

The 2020 rulebook will be mailed to all NSBA judges in December. All NSBA judges will be required to take an online written rulebook test that will consist of multiple choice questions based on the 2020 rulebook. Every judge will be required to take the online exam to maintain their current judge status with NSBA. The test will be available online for 30 days beginning in January. Judges will receive an email link to access the test platform. You may enter and leave the test as many times as you like during the 30 days, but the test must be completed by March 31, 2019.

Specific instructions will be sent via email to all judges. If you have any questions, please email Stephanie Lynn at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
