        Capsule Training

        With most all PRO drivers going to Constantine, then on to DePue, a perfect "Capsule Training" date would be July 26 or 27 in DePue. Is that possible?

          We are trying to avoid training at races. This is due to already long days and trying to find a pool.

                McKean in Texas, I'm in South Carolina. It is very hard to drive 12 to 13 hours to Illinois, another 12 hours back, for just a Capsule Test.

                  i have to agree with Mr. Kurps, i know of 3 capsule drivers in Kansas, 2 of which I KNOW need to be signed off ( myself, and my dad) but are unable to travel except to go to races. IMO the race comming up on memorial day weekend in Menomonie, WI maybe a good place for many drivers to get signed off in one day.

                    I need to renew my certification myself but will not make the trip from Idaho. Only makes sense to have them at the race. I feel it should be an initial certification only. So maybe we can solve this yearly problem of drivers need re-certs? Some of us accidentally re-cert every other race.

                      Guys it is impossible to meet everyones schedules. The Divers for the most part are not getting paid an if they are it is a small amount (could of stayed home and worked)
                      the time frame to get retrained (thats what it is training) is from end of season to first race and is done at many region meetings and the national meeting. that gives you about 5 months to retrain. If you wait for the Nationals--maybe there will be some more training ??? but you will miss three races if you race with USTS.
                      There was always capsule training at the First Florida race but ya can't count on that as Fla does not always have a winter USTS race. And last time

                      Nick flipping does not count as training--I tried that but several weeks after I flipped in Winnona I had to re train . It is really all about training not certification.
                      Suggest if you need to retrain and can not make any scheduled trainings--you call the race chaiman of the first race you want to go to and try and convince him to find a pool and get the trainers to help you.

                      At least with the current formate your training certificate does not end in the middle of the season.

                        Maybe there are some inboard or OPC people in your area? They must have to do something...... Just a thought!

                          Re: capsule training

                          It was brought up at the national meeting this year that ALL race site testing be BANNED for safty concerns. I do not know the final outcome. Most rescue teams are leaning this way. So training may become harder to find at races in the future. As a rescue team member I can say the site testing is a PITA with all the extra equiptment needed and the time after a long day on the water.

                            Got a Hydro but no current dunk test

                            Is there a list of future Capsule Training dates & sites. This Sunday Illinois class is impossible for me.
