MEET THE JUDGES

The Empire event will be judged by our team of Certified Operator Trainers. Each trainer is a Cat Certified Dealer Instructor (CDI) and has extensive experience in all facets of machine operation.

At Empire, we believe in Safety First. Trainers will work one-on-one with each competitor to complete a safety briefing, gain familiarity with the machine controls, and understand the challenge rules. This will ensure each participant has fun, stays safe and receives their best possible score.
