AS A RESULT OF A RECENT BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING OUR SOUTHCARS OUTREACH CLASS PRESENTATION METHOD WILL BE CHANGING.

THE CLASSES FOR 2013 HAVE NOW ALL BEEN COMPLETED. THE CLASSES FOR 2014 AND BEYOND WILL BE SCHEDULED DIFFERENTLY.

BASED ON THE FACT THAT OUR VEC PROGRAM, BY DESIGN, ISSUES A REVISED QUESTION POOL FOR THE DIFFERENT LICENSE CLASS EVERY FOUR YEARS, AND FURTHER THAT WE HERE AT SOUTHCARS HAVE A WEALTH OF CLASS INFORMATION ARCHIVED ON OUR WEBSITE, WE HAVE ELECTED TO RUN ONLY THE CLASS WHERE THE QUESTION POOL IS BEING CHANGED FOR THE YEAR.

THE TECHNICIAN LICENSE WILL BE CHANGING FIRST AND EFFECTIVE JULY 1 2014, THE GENERAL CHANGES IN 2015, AND THE EXTRA IN 2016.

WE ARE ENCOURAGING VERY STRONGLY FOR YOU THAT ARE INTERESTED IN UPGRADING TO USE OUR INFORMATION POSTED ON THE WEBSITE UNDER A SELF STUDY SCENARIO. WE FURTHER ENCOURAGE YOU TO FEEL FREE TO COMMUNICATE WITH US AT VOIP@VOIPNET.SOUTHCARS.COM AT ANYTIME YOU MAY HAVE QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE SUBJECT MATERIAL YOU ARE WORKING ON.

The General course for 2012 completed last evening June the 19th. Our class participants were highly motivated, extremely punctual, attendance was high during all of the nine classes, and two of our students have already passed the exam. In fact these two did so about half way through the course.

Southcars Outreach programming will continue with offering the Extra exam starting on July 8th and running until August the 14th. Information requests on these programs may be sent to VOIP@VOIPNET.SOUTHCARS.COM.

1130 EDT 4-27-2012

Your Southcars Outreach class support team was required to reevaluate the General class for this year. It was originally scheduled to run from April 29th to May the 27th. It has now been moved out by three weeks to start on May 20th, and run through June 17th. The reason for this move was a very small enrollment class currently, and one not sufficient in size to support the program. We will be using this additional 3 weeks to promote more interest in the program and will be making a final decision on class availability as we get closer to mid May.
