I haven't done any more than trying to get a feel for interest etc. I don't have 3 days to dedicate to this and I feel 3 days is the minimum. My thoughts at first led me to believe one day would work but I know it won't.

There are a lot of 3 day courses being offered all over through the NHLA and I think Wood-Mizer has started some also.

The cost is going to seem like a lot, but your going to get what you pay for and a life long knowledge that will make you money!  ;)

Thanks for the interest.
