One of the changes of 2016 FIRS-STC rulebook was article 18, about examination for new international judges. Now we have three steps:
– an oral test about the knwoledge of speed skating -to measure their capacity to understand and speak in one of the two official languages-;
– a written examination about the knowledge of STC regulations;
– candidates who succeed the first two (2) tests will be observed and evaluated in their capacity as judge in the different tasks of the jury on track or road.
