The primary points that I want to make is that CBJ instruction should be as uniform as possible and provide a basis for how KCBS contests are to be scored.
How about some Computer Base Training (CBT) modules (aka instructional videos) on the KCBS Web site highlighting some key take aways from the courses? This wouldn't replace instructed certification, at least not yet. The online videos could serve as refreshers for CBJ's and cooking teams.
