The Black Belt Grading will take place on Saturday the 10th of June in the Glenroyal Hotel Maynooth. The starting time of the event will be announced closer to the time pending the number of people presenting for grading.
Please note that all grading forms must be sent by the dates outlined below. In addition, please ensure that candidates applying for second degree or above fill in information relating to ALL previous degrees. Please note, you must also send a separate digital copy of each candidates photograph. Please label the attached photograph and grading form according to the full name of the student.
The closing date for emailing Grading application documentation is Monday the 8th of May. If there is a mistake or information left out on the form, it will be returned via email to the Instructor within 5 working days on receipt of the soft copy of the document, and the Instructor will have until Tuesday the 16th May to return the corrected form (via email).
1. Completed application form (in full)
2. Completed criteria worksheet (sections specific to grade candidate is applying for)
3. Photo (digital format) included on application form and in separate file.
4. Thesis - where needed for senior degrees
5. In the event where a person was only able to attend one day of a seminar, once they have completed the second day at another seminar within the timescale this will suffice.
6. Please note for those presenting for 2nd degree or above, it is required that the candidate has umpired for a minimum of 2 days each year prior to grading. These two days can be made from either two single days umpiring at the same event or two single days umpiring at different INTA events provided at least one day was at the INTA Nationals of the INTA Open.
Please note that any candidate who does not meet the criteria will not be accepted for Grading - It is the Instructors responsibility to ensure their student meets the criteria and communicates to them if they do not.
Failure to return the form to the Grading Panel by Tuesday 16th May will result in the candidate being removed from the grading list.
In all cases the Examiners' decision on candidates eligibility to grade is final.
