Master Judge Test Now Available Online

Share this article:
February 22, 2012

From the Judges committee, the Master Certified Barbeque Judges test is now online.  After considerable effort from the CBJ Instructors group, interested parties and the IT Team at MMA Creative the MCBJ is now available for qualified CBJ's to take online.

As in the past, MCBJ candidates must submit proof that they have judged 30 events, cooked with a team and be a current member of the Society.  Once proof of these requirements has been received, the candidate will be provided a code to receive the test.  One of the great features of the online test is that the candidate will know immediately if they have passed or failed the examination.  Candidates may prepare for the exam by going to the Continuing Education tab on the KCBS website to review rules and regulations as they pertain to judging.

Questions may be presented to Mike Lake, Judges Chair at mlake@kcbs.us or Karrin Murphy at the KCBS office at kmurphy@kcbs.us.
