When you want to enter an event like a CVI or world championships, the requirements are quite different than what you would expect at regular Canadian vaulting competitions.

To meet the minimum annual updating requirements of this certification, trainers must submit proof of their attendance at approved courses/seminars/clinics. All instructional events organized by your provincial vaulting organization are automatically approved for upgrading, as are all such events organized by your provincial equestrian sport organization. All other educational events must be preapproved by the chair of your provincial vaulting organization's Education Committee.
