Locations for Spey CCI Test

Hey guys-

Just curious, planning for the long run. What are the locations for taking the Spey Certified Casting Instructor test, and of those which would be closest to the southern US?

I have not yet taken the one handed CCI but I am in the final stages during the run up. I hope to take it this summer or early fall.

One day I would like to get certified as a spey instructor as well, although that day is necessarily a lot further off.

Do you guys see this program growing beyond the frozen north and away from the coasts?

Zach

Zach,

as the numbers of THCIs grow there will likely be more folks who are qualified to administer the test, which will allow for more opportunities for test takers. Right now to be a Spey tester you need to be Spey certified and Master certified and approved by the Spey committee, and there are only a few of these folks around.

Zack, if I might offer a 'good guess,' the Sandy 'Clave will be chock o' block with 'testers.' BUT, I'm sure that they've already have their books full of applicants.

A Full Year

This past year has been a rewarding year: processed a lot of information, developed a teaching style and refined my personal casting style. mpressed myself with how much I learnt but humbled by how much more there is to know. I quess the iceberg theory comes into play -- You see a little on the surface but what is unseen is really deep. I know quite a bit but now I realize there is a ton more to learn. At this point in the game, passing the test is secondary to studying for the "test". I'm better now than I was a year ago and only part way to where I want to be. Happy but humble.

Looking forward to taking the "test", Klem
ps, still haven't heard when I'm up.
