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.

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...

I filled in the form indicating that I was going to use "NRA Basic Pistol and supplement with the Illinois Carry Curriculum"....the language in quotes is verbatim.

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.

Bob,
My instructor stuff was sent by the book. It was my curriculum I sent. Will just have to wait and see. I figure there will be more added next week.

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������

No offense, but I'm going to give my money to someone that I know has been actively involved in getting us carry in this state. (hint: their join date was before 2013)
