Thank you for the response, I was too busy this weekend with everyone wanting their leaved picked up at the last second. I will stop over to my local supplier in the middle of this week.

The ICPI two day course cost $350 for non-members, $250 for members so i will most likely do that, I believe the January 13th/14th classes will work best for me and they are the closest. If my local supplier has a certification, that would be just as good to me.

There is an Old Blue Chair for each and every one of us, we just have to find it.
