We will hold Examiner Courses upon request. Contact our Tandem Administrator to get additional information.

In an effort to ensure our Examiners have enough Students to teach there are limits placed on the number of Examiners in a certain location. If you want to be an Examiner keep in mind that we will not accept your application if there is little demand and already an Examiner in the area. Find One »

In order to keep our records up-to-date, we require that all Tandem Examiners submit an annual renewal. This no-cost renewal just takes a few minutes and is easy to do, just fill out the online renewal and submit. Once received and verified, you will be sent your one-year Tandem Examiner Letter, and there is nothing more to do until next year. If we do not receive a renewal we will assume you no longer wish to be a Tandem Examiner and will train a new Examiner for your area.
