AIS Judges' Training

Training sessions are an excellent opportunity for judges, and other individuals, to learn about evaluating irises based on AIS guidelines as outlined in the AIS Handbook for Judges and Show Officials (8th edition).


Those interested are encouraged to attend. Training is made available each year at the affiliate, regional and national levels of the AIS. Sessions are also available on the AIS YouTube channel.
