As an instructor I have everything ready to go. To me the biggest concern is when the ISP plans on creating a certificate to issue to the students.

 

Speaking for myself, I use an outdoor range and conduct my classes weather permitting. If they wait until late fall to create a certificate I and possibly a number of other instructors may not be able to teach the required refresher course.

 

Do we have any idea when they will release the required certificate.

I am hoping they will finalize the certificate after the end of session.

Silly question, but when is the end of session.

I believe Spring session runs through May 31 unless there is a special call, but they return later in the year, Novemberish I believe.

Thank you

Mauserme or someone else will know Im sure. Was looking on their site for schedules but now Im not sure what, if anything, is between June and Nov.

Any other info like -

  1. How much in advance can we take our refresher course and does the certificate expire at any particular time?
  2. How far in advance should we send in for our renewel?
  3. Will our renewal date for the license run consecutively with the old one? Or will it start with the renewal? (Like, if I send it in 60 days before my expiration, will the new license use the new date if earlier? or the old date, so we don't lose any time.
  4. Will it be a background check and done? Or will it be the complete process again - Fed, ISP and local ability to object? This could be a real problem for Cook County people, in terms of giving the County a second shot at them.

Am I right in understanding that instructors do not need to take the course?

 

Do we know yet what the process for renewals will be for instructors?

There 'should' be a check box for instructor exemption for training. We'll see.

I hope someone here will tell us when there is a new 3 hour certificate to use.

 

Maybe a little information like when can we / should we give classes.

 

Thanks to all that are part of this forum, and those that work so hard.

I call ISP with these concern's on the certificate and other concern's addressed above, in Feb. and again last week. The first response was they was not sure, and they didn't even know for sure if the online system was set up for renewal (it is now).

 

Last week, I asked again and they refered me to "if your curriculum is approved for renewal follow it, we are not sure when the new certificate will be done, but they are working on it." I then asked, if I provide training and give them a renewal certificate of my own would that work, they said "NO, it must be a ISP cert." I then asked if it will be available again, "to ensure that people get renewal done for the 6 months prior, to ensure continuity", reply "they are working on it". I asked about when the Instructor renewal will be ready, again "they are working on it".

 

So, they are working on it!

Today, CCL instructors received the new certificate templates for the 3-hr renewal course and the regular 8/16 hrs. CCL course, along with instructor responsibilities packet, suggested roster, and suggested verification of prior training form.

 

If you are an instructor and did not receive the packet and templates, you should email the ISP instructor department and request the documents:

1. There is no rule on expiration of training. A new certificate was just issued to instructors so it should not expire any time soon either.

2. The renewal option on your CCL dashboard site will dictate this. IWe don't know yet when it will become active.

3. No idea - what do they do for the FOID? Does it renew from expiration date or renewal date?

4. I would bet it will be the full background check with window open to file objections, in case incidents have happened since the original application. Yes, it could be a problem for Cook County residents. We have discussed this with the ISP and Review Board counsel.

OMG, I expected this to take til the end of the year. VERY NICE.

 

I have one question. After July 1, 2018 they will no longer accept the old version of the 16 hour certificate. What happens if a student that has taken the class and has an old version of the certificate but doesn't apply until after July 1, 2018.

 

Will the ISP accept the old certificate or are we going to have to issue a new certificate with the original class date on it.

Once again, ISP has left me out in the cold. I'm beginning to see a pattern here. E-mail sent. Thanks Molly. If it weren't for this forum I wouldn't have a clue what's going on. I've received one E-mail from ISP since I became an instructor. Anyone else having similar issues?

Check your Spam folder. I have had some emails go to Spam when they shouldn't have.
