Wow, good luck to you. If the course is going to ultimately cost $250 your class size is certainly going to be self limiting
Might want to put on your thinking cap about what you are presenting. The exam format will change for first time examinees and ANYONE with less than a National score around the first of 2012. Current judges would be required to retake the taste to earn a National or better taste score BEFORE being able to sit for the separate essay exam. Prospective judges will take a timed online M/C, T/F and fill in the blank exam which will be either Pass or Fail. If passed they will be able to take the taste portion and that will determine their rank. The highest rank one can achieve with the online exam and taste combined is Certified. Those questions for the online exam will not be publicized and the question pool will have thousands of questions which will be randomized with randomized answers. (What is A on one exam may be C on another.) The taste exam will move from 4 beers to 6 beers.
On the traditional exam, history has shown an 80-85% passing rate so your guarantee to pass is practically guaranteed not to fail
