FFF Master Certified Casting Instructor Candidates
About this Workshop: This two-day workshop will guide you in preparing for the Master’s oral and performance tests. You will learn test requirements and expectations of the examiners. We will perform the complete test to demonstrate and explain both acceptable and unacceptable performance. We will assess your readiness in the five areas of the oral test and analyze and provide recommendations for any adjustments needed in your casting performance. You will walk away knowing your strengths and weaknesses and what needs more work. The detailed agenda is below.
