For Attention: All Judges and prospective Judges

The KUSA Breed Judges Learning Programme has completed its third year and the seventh Examination under this new programme are almost upon us. We wish those writing the exam the best of luck.
We are constantly updating Judges records, so please take a moment to view your records on the KUSA Website (www.kusa.co.za) and if something appears to be incorrect, please let us know.
We also draw your attention to the fact that the PBJSC’s are now responsible for allocating Assessors, First Assessments for first time judging appointments and keeping track of all your records. The PBJSC’s are required to forward updated qualifications to KUSA and staff will add to the master record and update your records on the website and Judges List.
