So, four business days in the past week and they approved seven apps?
Let's hope the pace picks up.

Thus, "as soon (as long) as...."

If it doesn't get approved, I'll be going to Plan B.

Well....I am on the list one of four approved in Cook County!!!!!

The apparent result of today election is an unmitigated disaster for this country. It appears that the White House is going to be occupied by an anti-semite, racist bigot that the potential to do incredible damage to our way of life. The cause of the outcome seems to be a simmering anger coming from an element with the population that is expressing what we can only describe as a "whitelash". It doesn't bode well for people of color, or the vulnerable.

The country is damaged, with wounds inflicted by both the left leaning element within the Democratic Party, there is substantial disagreement within elements in the GOP, our elective process has been interfered with by a quasi-terrorist group [WikiLeaks] and a foreign power[the Russians]. Its clear that many of the Trump supporters lack a world view and don't fully grasp the consequences of the outcome of this election.

Trump is going to discover very quickly that the skills required to win the Presidency are vastly different from those that are required to govern. Starting with 20 million individuals who have their health insurance with Obamacare, African American and Hispanic populations that feel they were victims of Voter Suppression.

It will be very telling to see if the President-elect make an effort to adopt the agenda that Paul Ryan has laid out which was certainly centrist, or will decide to pursue his hair brained ideas and wreck havoc with our capital markets, push us into a recession or depression and continue his toxic spew to further divide the country.

Those of us that actually understand how our government is supposed to function for the people are going to be watching. Either he is going to attempt to LISTEN to those from all sides that would offer him guidance in taking on the responsibilities that he is likely to assume, or he is going to continue to be captive to his ego and lay waste to our way of life.

The coming months are going to quickly demonstrate to us whether there is going to be an attempt to heal anything and unite the country, or if we are going face the most divisive period in our history since the civil war.

Personally, I am deeply disappointed and frustrated at the prospect of what the outcome of this election will bring. Those of us with the skills and understanding to affect the process aren't going to merely accept a deeply flawed solution....let's hope he starts listening to and engaging competent advisors to govern.

I submitted a curriculum approval form, because I plan to teach my own curriculum.

I think the magic formula is having been fingerprinted right away, filling out the paperwork correctly and having it in their hands Tuesday morning.

May god have mercy on those of you who didn't fill everything out correctly or who sent them your entire curriculum, or otherwise didn't follow directions. You may find yourself in limbo until they establish a procedure to correct mistakes and deficiencies...

Well I submitted mine Saturday Morning and I from out if state. So when will they approve that. Lol.


Since you failed to follow the direction, your paperwork is probably in the purgatory file...

I am on there, but I am not telling you who I am :ninja:


Those of us who matter already know! :ninja:.

I mailed all my paperwork yesterday, regular post. I has the same thought as Federal Farmer. Until curriculums are approved, I don't see a reason to rush...

I got printed Friday morning and submitted my online app around 6:00pm online, and mailed my stuff Saturday morning. I tracked it and it arrived Monday night in Springfield. I figure after readying yours I will hopefully be on the list next week. Hopefully it won't be long on the curriculum approval.

Same here, NRA BP and Illinois Carry Curriculum . Also not LEO.
But they did spell my last name incorrect, therefore it could be argued that I am not yet certified������
