Details for Instructors on Dan Test Candidate Submission Process
We appreciate your reviewing the information below before submitting candidates for testing and mailing packages as early as possible due to potential USPS delays.

Dan Manual (2021 edition)
Instructors may submit candidates for testing after confirming they have met current Association, Regional, and Studio requirements.
Before each Dan Testing cycle, studio owners are requested to project whom may be testing in the upcoming cycle. The studio owner or designee should submit prescreening information for their studio each cycle in which you have at least one candidate who is an active member with valid membership and:
The deadline for the Spring Cycle is January 31; for the Fall Cycle is June 30. Please include all candidates, including Special Needs 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.
Before submitting your studio's pre screen data, confirm each person’s membership and rank status with HQ and ensure they meet age, training, and Dan Clinic requirements. Please note: special circumstances must be presented to the Director for review, escalations, and approval in advance.
Submitting your Pre Screen Information via JotForm
Please have the candidate's current personal, membership, and training information available when submitting each candidate for pre screening. You may choose to collect that information in a spreadsheet so you have all information together for completing the pre screening student forms. Work with HQ to resolve any rank, membership, or other concerns by the pre screening deadline.
[Click here [Google] or here to download an optional worksheet to collect your studio information (not for submission)].
