nope, your certified as soon as you finish the class.
And honestly, there was absolutly nothing I got out of that class that hasn't been hashed out here many times. Over the past year, Jim Minion taught me all the judging requirments.. pretty much pounded it into my head. So class did nothing but got me the certificate.
Only thing i questioned a few times was the 'Garnish is Optional' rule. Rob says its always optional, but we were told specifically not to judge the lettuce. My questio.... was that we could turn in lettuce with brown rusty leaves, and we cannot be penalized. They agreed.
i disagreeed.... if they guy next to me has lettuce, and i dont.. I am screwed. It is human nature. one is plain and the other is purdy. So until I hear them say NO LETTUCE.. it is going in the box.
