I'm working to arrange one right now.. When we firm up the whens, and where's I'll PM you.

It will most likely be in Belvidere, but the exact where is yet to be found..

If you decide to go it yourself you can get the second edition depending on your confidence/comprehension level. That book expires June 30. The problem will be finding a testing session.

I'm having trouble contacting the person who asked for a class. But would be glad to help you through as an Elmer.
