Become a Certified Examiner
A Certified Examiner has a license to promote practitioners of the American Style Nunchaku in belt rank according to our rules and regulations. To become a Certified Examiner you must pass the Examiner Course.
The Examiner Course is approx 8 hours of study. Half of that (4 hrs) on your own time doing written work, and half (4 hrs) online through Zoom. The course consists of the following six chapters:
- Belt ranks in American Style Nunchaku
- The ASN belt rank structure
- The history of the belt rank system
- The promotion process
- The role of the Examiner
- YOU as an ASN Examiner
The participants will have to turn in two written thesis for evaluation to pass the course.
As a Certified Examiner you can the arrange belt tests and promote students within the ASN belt rank system. Note that the Certified Examiner is not a Certified Instructor by default. You need to have a Certified Instructors license to teach the ASN.
The Certified Examiner license does not have an expiration date, but it needs to be actively upheld by attending examiner’s meetings and keeping up to date with possible changes in the regulations. If you do not keep in touch with the federation your license will expire. To get it reinstated you will have to attend the course again.
Certified Examiner licenses are divided into classes according to the Examiner’s own belt rank. Normally a Certified Examiner may promote up to two levels below his/her own belt rank.
