The HM test will begin on Saturday August 1st at 5PM. and will wrap up Sunday morning August 2nd. The riding portion of the test will take place Sunday August 2nd after the HM test completes.

Dinner (8/1), breakfast (8/2), lunch and snacks will be provided.
Take advantage of this awesome opportunity to test with National Examiners and other C2 candidates! The Virginia Region is offering these certification testings for our upper level members, with the intent of giving them a leg up on their eventual national certifications.
Exposing members to USPC National Examiners (NEs) earlier in the educational process is a more gradual way to make the transition from club to national level tests. Additionally, using an NE is a better way to prepare our upper level members for their first national test. Lastly, a regional testing offers clubs the chance to utilize an NE if they only have one or two members who plan to test that year.
Cost is $75 for one test (HM or riding) or $125 for both tests. Non-VRPC members must use the code "OutofRegion" to register and pay $100 for one test or $150 for both tests. All participants must be a member of USPC.
Please contact Lisa Woods (email@example.com) if you have questions or have members you think would be interested in participating in these upcoming regional certifications.
