    hey BMET

    You'll want to check out all the major PSD agencies. I suggest checking out Lifeguard Systems
    I believe TDI also has a program now but I don't know much about that one.

    Be careful where you choose as these courses can be quite expensive and some agencies are as different as night and day. Also remember to take the opinions of people on internet forums with a grain of salt - my opinion is no exception! There can be allot of bias towards one way or the other - especially this board.

    I'd be happy to give you my slant on things. Feel free to PM me

    Yeah TDI's is called ERDi...the website kinda sucks though, but good email responses though.


    Been looking into myself so if anyone has comments one way or another?
