If you are an experienced FPS coach or experienced FPS Senior student (yrs 10, 11 or 12), we would like invite you train to become an evaluator. All evaluators must certify in the learning options they wish to evaluate. Following successful completion of the evaluator certification process, you will be invited to become an active evaluator for FPS Australia.
After successfully evaluating for FPS Australia for a few years, you may be nominated to certify as an International Evaluator with an opportunity to evaluate at IC.
Contact the FPS National Office to register your interest in becoming an FPS evaluator.
