How Do I Become An Examiner?

How Do I Become An Examiner?

Examiners MUST be a UME Volunteer.

The following forms must be turned in to verify your UME volunteer status:

Examiner Volunteer Status Form Levels 1-3

Examiner Volunteer Status Form Levels 4-6

To become an approved Maryland 4-H Horsemanship Standards Examiner for Levels 1-3, individuals must complete and pass an online training consisting of several learning modules and online tests. The tests may be taken as open-book tests. Maryland 4-H approved references for State contests and for Horsemanship Standards, and the Horsemanship Standards themselves may be used during the test. At no time may any individual taking this test receive assistance from another individual. 

Candidates must earn a grade of 80% or higher (Levels 1 and 2) or 85% or higher (Levels 3) to pass the test.

To request the link to online training and testing, or for more information, please e-mail Jennifer Reynolds (jenreyn@umd.edu) or call her at 301-405-1547.

To become an approved Maryland 4-H Horsemanship Standards Examiner for Levels 4-6, Examiners will be evaluated by a panel of three individuals using set evaluation criteria for that specific level. Evaluation criteria will be posted on the Maryland 4-H Horsemanship Standards website. Dates and evaluation criteria for each level can be viewed by clicking on the Examiner Level Testings link.
