~ Letter from the President ~
First and foremost we at U.T.S. would like to thank all of the
groups and individuals for their past participation in our program
and going forward into the future.
We are working on our current slide presentation, new instructors
and assistant instructors. We have not made any changes to any
of the current programs, however we did make a change in posting
in-house classes and pictures on our web page. For these
postings there will be a $5.00 charge for class post and
a $25.00 charge for a picture. We hate to add this cost but
maintaining our web site comes with a cost on our end.
If you have either of these that you want posted please send payment
and information to Linda
Balzer at the address which can be found on the web page
or in the manual.
We are starting to get some class requests for this year, some are
already posted on the web. Keep your eyes on the schedule
especially if you are due for re-certification.
One thing to keep in mind, is that over the years we have always
promoted in-house training, however you CANNOT train above the level
of Track Aware. It is always tempting and fun to do
sign-cutting etc., but you need to gain a lot of "on ground time"
first. As we have always said any time spent on the ground is
time spent learning.
Again we would like to take this time to thank everyone for their
support going forward into this year. We at U.T.S. are looking
forward to a learning and productive year for everyone, also we will
be working on Certificates of Attendance for Military and Law
Enforcement individuals. Don't forget to keep your
certification current by attending a class at your current level.
If you have any questions feel free to
contact one of us. With that being said we wish
everyone a productive tracking year.
