Motion: by Frank Phillips, Vice President, seconded by Mark Scarberry, to adopt a new procedure for Helpers coming into USCA helper program from other WUSV member Organizations.
Helpers coming in with rating of Club Basic/Entry classification recognized and awarded to applicant provided the helper meets the minimum requirements for that level as described in the USCA Helper program. Newly converted helpers must attend a USCA helper seminar to reclassify within 1 year of joining USCA.
National/Regional Classification recognized and awarded to applicant provided the helper meets the minimum requirements for that level as described in the USCA Helper program. They must also submit a video, to the Helper committee, of them preforming Trial helper work recorded within the last 18 months to show the helper has the ability to be rated as Regional or National level. Newly converted helpers must attend a USCA helper seminar to reclassify within 1 year of joining USCA.
Teaching Helpers will submit the Apprentice Teaching Helper Application as outlined in the Helper Program (section 15.2)
- The Helper Committee will review each application
- The Apprentice Teaching Helper Prerequisites (section 15.1) are waived
- Upon acceptance of the applicant into the Teaching Helper Apprenticeship Program, the apprentice will complete 2 apprenticeships after which the apprentice will be issued a probationary teaching helper status. If one of the apprenticeships was performed under a Helper Committee member then the apprentice can be given full teaching helper status. If given a Probationary status the apprentice will receive full teaching helper status after attending the National Helper College.
