Region 8 Dan Test Forms for Instructors
With adjustments to how we are working through the pandemic, we are streamlining how we manage Dan Test Candidate information. We appreciate your help in using this updated process to submit your candidates for the Spring 2021 cycle and mailing as early as possible due to potential USPS delays.
Before each Dan Testing cycle, studio owners are requested to project whom may be testing in the upcoming cycle and the Dan Test Coordinator confirms their membership and Dan Clinic requirements. The studio owner or designee should submit prescreening information for their studio each cycle in which you have at least one candidate who:
- registered in a previous cycle, did not test then, but want to be considered for testing in this cycle (please note if you have the application packet or if it remained with the Dan Test Coordinator)
- tested in a recent previous cycle and want to be considered for re-testing in this cycle (re-test fee applies)
- want to be considered for testing in this cycle
The deadline for the Spring Cycle is January 31; for the Fall Cycle is June 30. Please include all candidates - no assumptions are made that if a candidate registered previously and didn’t test or failed, they will be testing in the next cycle.
Please note: any student under the age of 10 must have Director’s approval in advance.
