Being a judge at our competitions is an extremely important task, without judges our tournaments can’t run. The quality of your decisions also makes a big difference on the experience of our students. As such, QatarDebate has designed a rigorous training program to help develop our judges. Our training program is divided into three phases: Beginners, Intermediate & Advanced. This Intermediate session is for those who have completed the Beginners Session.
