Many modelers seem to have the impression that meeting the requirements for the various Achievement Program certificates involves an incredible amount of documentation. In order to show that this is not entirely true, check the links below. They will lead you to documentation prepared by members of the Coal Division and submitted for Achievement Program certificate approval. Each document was actually submitted and accepted for the certificate indicated. You may be pleasantly surprised by the small amount of writing involved in some cases. As more members submit more documentation, those documents will be posted here.
Master Builder - Cars
Model Railroad Engineer - Electrical
Master Builder - Scenery
In order to make model judging a bit more efficient, we ask that you have a judging sheet for your model completed and ready for the judges. Also, please have the required description of your work prepared and available for the judges. This is the document that will be passed along for review at the regional and national levels. It must be adequate to convince those reviewers that you did merit quality work. We suggest you review the judging guidelines and write your document in a way that will address the points the judges will be looking at.
