Today I spent 8 hours in class and am now the proud holder of this certificate:
Oh, and I also got a patch for my vest
This class was organized by the HOG Chapter that I belong to and opened up to a couple of other local HOF chapter members. We had 32 participants in the class. We were originally supposed to hold it at our sponsoring Dealership, but with so many people attending the venue was changed to a library that has a lot of classrooms.
All participants paid their own class fees and instructor travel fees (he came up from past Boston). We also kicked in money to donate to the library for allowing the use of their large conference room that had tables/chairs for the entire mob (plus extra - we could have had 50 fit easily), a projector screen and computer set up for PowerPoint slides and of course the necessary restrooms. Plus we had lots of room to hold 3 different training scenarios at the same time.
We all had a good time and learned lots. It helped that a couple of people had attended this class before so were able to help with the training scenarios - otherwise it would have taken forever getting thru them with just the lone instructor.
UPDATE: Someone sent me a picture of my attendance. I have no idea who the other people are - they are from different HOG Chapters.
