Chuck,
    Yes we give a test.  It is required in Region 17 that a test be
given with a minimum of 10 questions per hour of training.  They are written
but open book / open notes.  The questions are usually on the basics, for
example:
True or False
1.  A Tall Bearded iris must be at least 27 1/2" tall.
2.  A Tall Bearded iris must have at least 9 buds.
3.  A new and unusual color
is the perfect reason to introduce an iris.
4.  An iris is given 10 points for
reblooming.
5.  Judges may vote their ballot from a picture as long as it is
in color.

And so on.  Frequently questions are fill in the blank... but
generally the tests are not tricky or tough, rather designed to be sure the
trainee was paying attention to what the handbook states.
 

Thanks,

Dana
