[quote=""FDready""]It's quiet because there's nothing to talk about. Not even the training centre themselves know a thing. They don't know when there's going to be a class, they don't know how many are going to be approved for the class and they haven't a clue how many classes there will even be. Yo...

[quote=""FF009""]Have they ever ran 3 classes in a single year?[/quote] This has happened a few times. There is no known formula for how many classes will take place. It's simply a combination of need and finances, but those variables change. They have run one class in a year, two classes in a year,...

[quote=""JCFire""]Trying to tell me something? Considering we both know who we are in real life, I think you can agree there are better ways to contact me and 'tell me something'.
