Now this may just be one of the best damn ideas I have seen here yet and I've seen lots of good ones. Giving members a chance to identify instructors will be a tremendous help in lots of threads on here. Everyone here is full of advice. We are all guilty of that sometimes. But sometimes the advice we give here in these forums is not always sound or beneficial. Obviously, if someone is identified as an instructor, then that will help people to be more confident about any advice or information presented. In other words, it helps lessen the negative effects of "gun shop tall tales" that always seem to strike the inexperienced.

And obviously, this will make it much easier to locate instructors from specific areas, ask them about their courses, keep track of course dates and sign up for them.

A great idea here folks.

Here within the next 9 months to a year I'm going to try and get my own school and training program up and running. I've done some one on one training and have co-instructed a few couses, but would really like to get my own gig up and runn'n. Any pointers from all of the people who are already established in the training comunity would be greatly appreciated.

No worries on this end, GB. I know how it goes when you have a full plate.

In the past whenever I have reached out board staff has always responded to me in a timely manner. I am anxious and looking forward to contributing to this new community on the board.

Well, haven't seen the notice yet, but I just made a post, replying about a Gun Show, and saw the Instructor Icon.

Thanks GoatBoy, I appreciate it. And considering how busy a site this place is, that was a pretty reasonable response time.

Thanks for doing this for all the hard working instructors out there, Goatboy.

From what I've read so far in this thread, GoatBoy is really trying to get the PEP up and running. I've also noticed that some eligible members have received their icon and no e-mail confirmation, while others have received the e-mail confirmation and no icon. And some have already received both.

I haven't received either one yet.

I'm sure GB will get it squared away soon.

Be Safe.

I sent you an e-mail on 9/20/07, and I haven't received an e-mail or icon.

Any idea on an eta for my approval/denial?

Thanks in advance.
