New Evaluators

These clinics allow SARDUS to work with new evaluators. We are intentionally moving very slow with the expansion of our evaluator pool, so we can maintain the quality and consistency that we expect with our certifications. Evaluators-in-training work with our experienced evaluators setting up and observing how each test is evaluated. This is a very work-intensive process, but our results are tests that are set up and evaluated the same across the country. If you are interested in becoming a SARDUS evaluator, please apply by contacting us. We have very limited space.
