EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR REPORT; Rick has run into some difficulty in getting vendor sponsored classes this year. Due to this the week schedule isn't filled out.
Cummins Northwest will do a 1 day electronics and ism class for $1400, & we    supply an engine to do hands on with. Rick will check to see if this is adequate time frame for this class or should it be a 2 day class.
George found an air brakes instructor from the Washington group, we will see if    he can do a second day on ambulance brakes.
Hughes reported that Pierce won't do a Command zone class if they can't control the audience so that they are teaching only to pierce customers. Hughes offered that pierce could do an advanced electrical class instead
