New Evaluators

These clinics give SARDUS the opportunity 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 SARDUS below. Very limited space.
