RE: AIS:judges training

From: "Chris Hollinshead" <cris@netcom.ca>

I think that Dorothy has covered this off the initial question quite nicely
(see original message below).

Another question now...
Is there not a minimum prescribed length of a training session on a topic
for the judges training?
I do know there is a guideline/requirement for the number of questions...
though I do not recall the exact detail on this.

Someone with the AIS judges handbook.... let us know what it says on this.
