Message from the New NC State ITLS Chapter Director, Billy Eldridge
First of all, as the new State Chapter Director, let me thank you for teaching ITLS in North Carolina! I look forward to the task and hope to hit the ground running.
ITLS is undergoing another revision with the 9th edition ITLS Manual planned for publishing in September/October 2019.
In November 2019, the 9th edition Instructor Update course will be available and required to be completed by all instructors before teaching and using the new 9th edition manual.
If your Instructor certification expires in 2019, please let me know so that a 1 year extension card can be issued. ITLS North Carolina is issuing this 1-year extension card to keep your ITLS instructor certification current and valid until then. After completing the 9th edition update, instructor cards will be issued with a 4 year expiration date.
Starting January 1 2019 International course fees have increased to $17.00 with the NC fee remaining at $10.00. All certification cards issued will also have a 4-year expiration date.
Payments for classes should be forwarded to me at 333 Foster Road Biscoe, NC 27209. This address is being placed on all forms on the website so you should download the new forms ASAP.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-984-8881 if you have any questions.
Thank you for all you do!
Billy Eldridge, NC ITLS Coordinator
**** PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO YOUR INSTRUCTORS. IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR INSTRUCTOR EXPIRATION DATE, EMAIL ME BEFORE THEY COMPLETE THE ONLINE UPDATE ****
