Does anyone know the procedure for assessments after completing one level, and then moving on to the next?
I am confused by the parelli website, as on the Savvy Club page it says:
1) To claim you free Harmony pack when passing level 1or Refinement pack when passing level 2 you must have an official assessment. Assessments can be done by sending your video to our head office in the UK or to one of our Endorsed Parelli Professionals. In order to claim your next levels' pack your official levels pass must be dated after the start of your membership. You can not claim retrospectively. Assessments cost £15 (£25 non-member) per ½h video assessed.
But on the assessment page of the site it says:
There are two ways you can assess your progress through Pat's
1. You can "Self-Assess" by using the checklists at the end of each lesson in the PocketGuides for each level. Self-assessment does not qualify you for an award packet or rank you as an official level-graduate. However, if you do self-assess initially and want to have an "Official Assessment", that can be done also (see #2 below).
2. You can have an "Official Assessment" with a Parelli Endorsed Instructor. Many people enjoy having official recognition of their achievements, and having this official record allows you to automatically qualify for higher level courses with Pat Parelli, Linda Parelli, and Parelli
Does this mean that if you join the Savvy club, and pay monthly, that you have to do an official assessment, but if you just buy the packs and pay the one off price, that you can self-assess?
I really don't want to do the assessments, as I just want to do the course for enjoyment and the benefit of my horses. I hate to do assessments/tests!, and I am not interested in having any certificates or such like.
