Breed Awareness & Orientation Schools
The CFA Breed Awareness and Orientation Schools are held several times a year, including in conjunction with the CFA National Show, throughout the regions of CFA.
The CFA Breed Awareness & Orientation School is open to anyone who may someday plan to apply to the CFA Judging Program, as well as those serious CFA breeders who may desire a better understanding of the judging process and the other recognized breeds with which they do not work.
The school curriculum usually includes items such as:
- Applying to the CFA Judging Program
- Getting Started/How To Be a Good Trainee
- Welcome to the Glamorous World of Judging—Ethics and Etiquette
- Condition, Standards and Structure
- Judging and Handling
- The Psychology of Judging
- Colors and Patterns in the Pedigreed Cat
- SH Breeds
- LH Breeds
- Handling Sessions
