With the flurry of of registrations coming up for renewals starting in February, I would have thought that we'd have a healthy listing of courses in the area in this section.  So far, I've pulled to out of this section the following:

 

Thiokol - Lockport

AKA - Naperville

J28791 - Palos Hills

Drillgun - Zion

Craigcelia - Morris/Elburn

 

Compared to the scores of listings 5 years ago, this seems to be glaringly incomplete.  Seems the SW portion of the Metro area is pretty well covered.  However, nothing in the City or NW.  

 

You instructors out there, let's start getting your details shared.

 

Thanks.

I just tried to edit the first post so that I could add OrlandInstructor but I guess the editing is blocked.  I was hoping to organize these by region, and keep adding all the instructors who replied, but I guess I'll send a note to the admin and see what they suggest. Thx!

Website addresses?

 

Thiokol - Lockport 
AKA - Naperville
J28791 - Palos Hills
Drillgun - Zion

 

If you all can include website addresses (if any), I am willing to post a list/document here.

I guess it's not on people's minds yet.  I imagine that Jan / Feb will be busy for all the ranges, as people are more likely to think about it last-minute.  Might as well get it done in the fall and be before the rush. :)

 

Great idea on creating a listing thread as IllinoisCarry members consider renewal.  I'd certainly rather give my business to a fellow forum member.

They'll suggest you pay the annual $25 fee to be a Supporting Member, which also allows you to edit your posts. ;)

Just talked with Mrmagloo.  He is allowing me to jump on the idea to formulate a list.  On this list I am including all IC CARRY Members who are instructors in the state (even for you southern folk  :o ) so keep them coming here or send me a PM with website and where you are teaching please.

 

Thanks Mrmagloo :)

Anyone know if Rocco aka @RockDiver from BlackFlag Training will be doing a 3hr renewal class?

I know he posted about some knee issues that had him down and out which I think was not long ago.

Great idea!  Do you have a link to the list?  Might be a good idea for a "Pinned" topic in Training.

How do we get a pinned post?  I guess I could just post it in a separate post and an admin will have to pin it....Yes?    Or, I could host in a google document and make it public....Need admin confirmation - how should we work this?

I've read one cannot renew until the "renew" appears at the ISP website.  Is there a time frame when one can complete the renewal class as related to license expiration / or being able to renew on the ISP site?  Or can you take the renewal class anytime and renew with the ISP when you can?

You can take the class anytime. Supposedly 5 months prior to your expiration date, your renew button will be active (but that is unconfirmed).

Thanks again for running with this Craig.  This is going to be a great help to all of the members, and no doubt a real considerate undertaking in getting the word out for the fellow instructors as well.  Very thoughtful of you!  Thanks!!
