NEW INSTRUCTOR BUDDIES
New CTDI and CCFC instructors are paired with experienced instructors to be their “buddy.” Buddies are there to answer your questions and guide you through the process, both before you finish your exams, and after. If you’d like to be paired with a buddy, please select one from the list and contact them directly.
How do I earn credits?
With every student title, you earn one credit. Stunt dog LIVE ring trial judging is 2 credits. Video judging is one credit.
Refer a new CTDI/CCFC/SDJ instructor to earn 8 credits.
Credits can be redeemed for almost everything we sell, including dog titles, Master Class online courses, and merchandise. Every month you will receive an email with a PDF statement of your credits. You can also find the current number of credits in your bank by clicking on your name in the instructors list. You can find the credit price for items on this website, in small font below the money price.
How can I see my current credits total?
Otherwise, you can get a fairly up to date (within a few days) total of current points available by
clicking your name here and looking at the very bottom of the popup.
How can I purchase something with credits?
When you checkout, there will be an option asking if you wish to pay with a credit card, PayPal, or instructor credits. When we receive your order we will look how many credits you have in your bank, and contact you if we need additional payment by credit card.
