KatsMuse Don Yelle is a great teaching helper, and I am happy to say that I passed my basic trial helper certification test! I still have lots to learn, and am only starting the journey to becoming a helper, but so far I'm 1 for 1 LOL.


That's Great! Good for you!

ayoitzrimz Just wanted to follow up

The seminar was awesome, and definitely learned a ton! I even ended up buying someone's brand new scratch pants at a discount to boot (they didn't like the helper work too much, and the pants were brand new!).

If anyone is interested in helper work, I would recommend going to one of these seminars, even if you don't plan on getting certified. It's lots of fun, and you learn a lot, and it gives a handler a different point of view

Who is the teaching helper? What club is putting it on? I can try to get in touch with them and ask them to make sure you can participate.

Hi Frank,

Thanks, but not necessary It's at Ronny Burmer's club - Ocean State SchH Club and the teaching helper is Don Yelle. I will get in touch with Ronny and ask all these questions, I was just wondering what the "official" rules are.

As far as credit for the seminar - I am mostly going in order to learn and improve my (very very very basic) helper skills When I have a scorebook, pants, and jacket, and even a proper stick I will go for another seminar and start the process of certifying myself. I just hope I can participate in this seminar you know?

Thanks again for info!

Smithie86 We are making sure that everyone has a helperbook, so that way, one less thing to do for any future. Our helper Seminar is this weekend with James Laney. Very cool, as we have know James for a long time and he is an excellent helper and instructor.

Should be fun. All levels, multiple breeds to work, including 3 dogs from a World level (Yakk, Enzo at 10.5 at still working and Frodo) helping out.

I have talked to everyone to see who needed what and we made sure all is taken care of. First and foremost-------> STARBUCKS FOR ALL!

mycobraracr Pretty much what Lisa said. I have needed a score book, pants, jacket, sleeve, stick and a dog to work. The only way to know for sure is to contact the host club/person.

ayoitzrimz Thanks Lisa! Hehe all i have is my sleeve my cleats and my dog but hopefully they will let me get in on the seminar part with just that and i will probably borrow and apron from someone so I have something. Anyway I will contact the club and ask them. If anyone else can chime in it'll be appreciated

lhczth I would contact the club. Sometimes the seminar part does not require a person have a USCA helper book. You should have a sleeve, scratch pants and correct footwear. You MUST have a USCA helper book and correct helper attire (which includes a jacket) to participate in a sanctioned helper classification. Most also require you to bring a dog that can be worked. Only fair.

Hopefuly Frank will see this just in case I have missed anything.

UScA helper seminar and recertification - do I need a helper scorebook?

Hi, I have active UScA membership and saw an upcoming helper seminar I'd like to attend but I don't have a helper scorebook...

Do I need to get one before the seminar? Can I attend the seminar without it? What are the repercussions if any?

Thanks in advance!
