There have been a lot of inquiries as to where new programs may be showing up for fall 2009 or even spring 2010. So here are some areas that have shown strong interest in hosting an USDF "L" Education Program:
Region 8 - Maine - interest has been expressed for starting Part 1 as early as the beginning of 2010.
Region 3 - Florida - interest has been expressed and I believe they are in the scheduling stages. If organized I am guessing it will be winter 2010.
Region 7 - There has been interest in hosting a Final Exam, a stand alone exam, in early spring of 2010 for Southern California.
There was fairly strong interest expressed in Northern California, for a complete program, but I am not sure what stage they are in at this point.
If you are interested in attending an "L" Program but do not see one appearing in your area, I strongly recommend contacting your local club or USDF Group Member Organization. Ask if they would be interested in hosting a program and if others have shared an interest in participating in a program.
